This workshop brought together artists, scholars and students from cartography, geography, the humanities and the arts who are interested in exploring further the relationships between maps, emotions and places. We had a combination of presentations and activities to foster these discussions and are planning a special issue for a journal.


Some of the presentation authors have shared their work. You can find their presentations linked in workshop programme below.


The workshop is jointly organized by the ICA Commissions on Art & Cartography, Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization (CogVis), and Topographic Mapping.
