23rd ICA Workshop on Map Generalisation and Multiple Representation

By Eric Van Rees - 9th June 2020 - 07:05

Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft, The Netherlands, November 5 and 6, 2020

Notice: depending on the control of the Corona virus, the event will either take place entirely at the venue, or partly at the venue and partly online (hybrid), or fully online.

Following the recent evolutions of cartography, the 23rd edition of the workshop will highlight propositions of map generalisation and multiple representation methods and applications for interactive multi-scale visualisations of spatial data. Topics of interest include those where thematic or reference cartographic or geographic data (2D or 3D) are generalized, simplified, or aggregated in any way. You are invited to submit a 1,500 word paper​, on advances, work in progress, or a position statement, following the general guidelines of the ICA conference abstracts. All submissions will be double-blind peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published on the ICA commission website​. If they wish, the authors of accepted papers will be allowed to extend accepted papers to 8 pages, following the ICA Proceedings guidelines. The following list of welcome topics is non-exhaustive:

  • map feature geometry simplification, aggregation, typification, etc.;
  • map generalization for emerging technologies such as augmented or virtual reality;
  • abstraction or sense-making of ‘Big Data’;
  • semantic generalization;
  • continuous generalization;
  • multi-scale interactions for visualisation and analysis;
  • computational geometric methods;
  • map label selection;
  • edge bundling;
  • evaluation and quality in generalization;
  • perception and cognition of multi-scale visualisations.

Submission and review of short papers will be managed through EasyChair (an online conference management system): .

Important dates

Submission deadline: Monday 24th August, 2020, submitted to EasyChair.

Notification of paper acceptance: by Friday 25th September, 2020
