ICA Commission on Atlases in co‐operation with
ICA Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Information Visualization and
ICA Commission on Use, User and Usability Issues
do cordially invite Papers and Attendance for the Joint Workshop in Olomouc, Czech Republic on April 27 – 30, 2018
Although every atlas is intended for its users, cartographers should pay attention to the fundamental cognitive and usability issues of the product. The joint workshop addresses strengthening existing research on topics related to atlases, cognitive and usability issues and provides a platform for joint cooperation between cartographers dealing with atlases, cognitive, and user issues that will lead to new collaborations, new ideas and new friendships.
The workshop sessions will be managed as either oral presentation of research contribution or open mind discussion above presenters’ motions where cartographer from each commission can present their ideas to the members of all three commissions and others. Participants may also choose from some practical workshops. Optional guided tours to the romantic water cruise on underground River Punkva and visit of the Macocha Abyss, the largest gorge in the Central Europe and Moravian Cartographic Center.
