English abstract:
Cartography is seen by many as facing a change of paradigms currently, triggered by technological challenges. As a result of innovative available technologies it becomes considerable, that cartographic communication processes can be realized which deliver user-tailored information to a specific user everywhere ("ubiquitous") and anytime.
This paper reviews the enormous diversity of fundamental questions which are appearing in modern cartography based on new technologies. It argues that a theoretical fundament is necessary to be able to define the core elements of a discipline. By discussing the existing Research Agenda of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) and other existing bodies of knowledge in related disciplines the vision of a further development of a Body of Knowledge for the domain of Cartography and related disciplines is discussed.
