Terms of References

  • To promote original and practical research on geospatial data from all kinds of technology such as satellite imagery, range sensors, mobile devices, and social media for mapping with a focus on geospatial big data handling, cartographic information extraction, 3D reconstruction of built environments, integration of indoor mapping with building information models (BIM).
  • To network cartographers with researchers and practitioners in photogrammetry, remote sensing, and computer science communities that share common interest in geospatial data processing.
  • To develop closer links with ISPRS, IAG, FIG, IEEE-societies, and other ICA commissions to organize ICA workshops or joint symposia during 2023-2027.
  • To organize and publish special issues in the International Journal of Cartography and other related journals. 
  • To promote knowledge transfer on geospatial data analytics to natural and built environments, early warning and natural disaster mitigation.
  • Prepare promotional materials reflecting the commission’s terms of reference and activities to support ICA’s presence at international forums (e.g., World Map, Map Middle East, meetings of the Joint Board of Geospatial Information Societies, UN meetings, and other regional conferences).
