Welcome to GeoCart'2020

Uncharted Frontiers: Cartographic Innovation and Discovery


To our valued attendees, sponsors, ‚Äčspeakers, and other interested parties:

The GeoCart and NZCS Committees have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel GeoCart'2020.

We are all deeply disappointed, but these are unprecedented times and it is the right thing to do under the circumstances. With so much uncertainty around COVID-19's impact in the weeks and months ahead, we hope cancelling early will give the New Zealand cartographic and geospatial community some clarity for planning purposes.

Looking forward, we have decided not to wait until 2022 for the next conference. Instead, we will hold a special GeoCart'2021 in April next year, to coincide with the NZCS 50th Anniversary celebrations. GeoCart'2021 will retain the same theme as 2020, as well as the currently planned special publications, Young Geospatial Competition, and 10th Anniversary commemorations.

We will announce the dates, venues, and Keynote speakers through the usual channels as soon as they are confirmed. Stay tuned for more details to follow.

Both committees wish to thank everyone for their continued support of the GeoCart conferences. Although we must wait a bit longer before coming together again, GeoCart'2021 will be just as fantastic as 2020 would have been.

We look forward to seeing you in Wellington next year!

Kia kaha. Stay well.
