Conference Cartography, Geoinformation and the Sea
Zadar, June 15-16, 2007

Organizer: Croatian Cartographic Society


Basic Data

Map is a symbolised representation of geographic reality, representing selected features and characteristics, resulting from the creative effort of its author's execution of choices, and is designed for use when spatial relationships are of primary relevance.

Cartography is the art, science and technology of making and using maps.

Geoinformation is information related to objects which are directly or indirectly associated by a position in relation to the Earth.

After the first three conferences in Zagreb

2004 - Cartography, Geoinformation and New Technologies
2005 - Geoinformation and Cartography in Education
2006 - Cartography, Geoinformation and Spatial Data Visualisation,

our wish by organising this conference in Zadar is to contribute to the development of geoinformatics, cartography, geography and related fields, but this time with special emphasis on sea and coastal area geoinformation research. A wide range of available conference themes and prominent invited lecturers guarantee interesting lectures and contemporary approach to these issues.

Conference Themes

Conference program, paper abstracts and presentations are going to be published on a CD which will be prepared for the conference. The best papers are going to be recommended for publishing in Croatian and English in Cartography and Geoinformation and Geoadria journals.
