"Recent research developments in modern cartography in Europe";
International Journal of Cartography (invited),
Much digital data generated today has a spatial component. Depicting, analyzing and communicating this spatial data has been a cartographic concern for decades. Many methods, tools and technologies have been developed in cartography to effectively communicate this data to humans to support orienting in the environment, understanding
(complex) natural and social phenomena, as well as making social, political and economic decisions. In recent years, with the advent of the information age and the growing volume of this data, cartography as a discipline has become even more important and has gained
much interest from expert and novice map users.
In response to these rapid advances, the first International Cartographic Association European Symposium on Cartography (EuroCarto 2015)was organized in Vienna (Austria) in November
2015. It had its aim to address and discuss contemporary developments and research in cartography. A selection of reviewed papers is provided in this special issue of the Journal. It is provided to reflect the current efforts in the realm of European contemporary cartography.
