Session on “The Future of Mapping”

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubikcan @ 8:27 am

A special plenary session on “The Future of Mapping” has been announced for the forthcoming IBG/RGS Conference in London in August (Institute of British Geographers/Royal Geographical Society).

The Future of Mapping
A panel discussion with Ed Parsons (Google), Mary Spence (BCS), and Dr Denis Wood (independent scholar).

Thursday 28 August – 16:50-18:30 –  Ondaatje Theatre.

(BCS = British Cartographic Society). As you can see, the topics will probably cover geoweb/maps 2.0 kind of stuff, as well as the role of the map in creating knowledge.

(Slightly off-topic, I have to say there’s an amusing Fake Ed Parsons blog out there that parodies him in good fun.)
