English abstract:
The paper argues that cartography as discipline is probably more than ever affected and advanced by technological innovations and developments. New possibilities in acquisition of spatial data, their
processing and modelling and finally their distribution are available. In the context of new technologies there is an increasing number of cartographic applications available and in process of development.
In the new situation, it is necessary to redefine the role of cartography and to integrate the theoretical fundaments with technological developments. In this context the role of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) is crucial.
