Welcome to GeoCart'2022

Uncharted Frontiers: Cartographic Innovation and Discovery

Nau mai, haere mai! GeoCart'2022, Aotearoa New Zealand's 10th National Cartographic Conference, will convene from 24-26 August at the Tiakiwai Conference Centre in the National Library of New Zealand, Wellington.

GeoCart'2022 aims to bring together a wide cross-section of professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts engaged in cartography, map curatorship and research, geovisualisation, and GIScience. Participants will hear about the latest developments and research, learn about current and upcoming projects and products, network with their counterparts in the greater community, and develop a deeper understanding of cartography and mapping.  To celebrate its landmark 10th anniversary, GeoCart'2022 will feature commemorative presentations and a special restrospective Proceedings.

We warmly invite you to join us in Wellington for this exciting and inspiring event!

We also invite you to stay in Wellington and attend the New Zealand Geospatial Research Conference (NZGRC 2022), which will be held at Massey University from 29-30 August.

Call for Contributions

You are invited to submit professional or research presentation abstracts, or full research papers for consideration for the GeoCart'2022 book, on any topic in cartography, map curatorship, history of cartography or exploration, geovisualisation, GIScience, or other related disciplines. Abstracts should provide a concise and clear overview of the presentation topic.

Each abstract must be submitted towards an oral presentation or poster presentation stream and will be reviewed by a member of the Programme Committee from an appropriate field and background. Full research papers will be considered for oral presentation only and will be peer reviewed by two members of the International Review Committee.

All accepted submissions will be published in the Conference Proceedings. See the Author Guidelines for further details. Please be aware some oral presentaton abstracts submitted may be accepted as posters instead.

Principal authors of accepted abstracts are eligible for a 10% discount on the conference registration fee.

NZCS Young Geospatial Competition

The New Zealand Cartographic Society is proud to again sponsor the NZCS Young Geospatial Competition lightning talks.

The YGC is open to current students and those who graduated within the past three years. Only one individual may present and all topics must be geospatial in nature. Abstracts will be reviewed before acceptance and are subject to the same criteria and deadlines as standard submissions. Entrants to the YGC may also submit a second abstract for a standard paper on a different topic.  See the YGC Guidelines for further details.

Lightning talks will be judged by a panel of the conference Keynotes. A prize pack for each competition is to be announced. Winners will also be featured on the NZCS website and in post-conference publications.

Approved YGC entrants are eligible for a 10% discount on the conference registration fee.

NZCS National Map Exhibition 2022

The New Zealand Cartographic Society invites you to submit an entry to the National Map Exhibition 2022. Entries in this competition will be displayed and judged at Geocart'2022 where a panel of judges will decide on how successfully a map delivers on its stated purpose, taking into account its design, execution and presentation.

Subject to the number and quality of entries received, a winner will be announced for each of two categories: Printed Map Product and Digital Map Product. Additional prizes will be awarded at the judges’ discretion. All entries from New Zealand domiciled cartographers will be eligible for selection to represent New Zealand at the 2023 ICA International Cartographic Exhibition in Cape Town, South Africa.

Entries may be submitted by any individual or organisation and there is no limit on the number of submissions. Entries must be original products, in their finished state, and first produced/published after 30 June 2020.

Entry deadline: 12 August 2022

Venue

All GeoCart'2022 sessions and breaks will be held at the outstanding facilities of the National Library of New Zealand in Thorndon, Wellington. The Ice Breaker reception will be at the Backbencher Gastropub, and the Gala Dinner will convene at the Queen's Wharf Ballroom at Foxglove on the Wellington waterfront.

Workshops

The conference will feature two associated Map Design Workshops for 2022: Cartograpic Communication preceding the conference on 23 August, and Geovisual Analytics with ArcGIS the following weekend on 27-28 August.  Both events have limited space and are BYOD.

MDW'2022: Cartographic Communication

23 August | Victoria University of Wellington

Dr. Chris McDowall will teach principles and techniques for communicating geographic information to an audience. Over a series of exercises, he will demonstrate how to create useful and impactful maps that translate in a range of settings. The workshop will cover map design, cartographic techniques, readability testing and considerations for designing for multiple formats, sizes, and levels of interactivity.

This workshop is designed for anyone wanting to learn to create maps for a non-specialist audience. It will focus on techniques that are key to effective cartographic communication. No programming experience or knowledge of advanced analytical techniques is required.

MDW'2022: Geovisual Analytics with ArcGIS Insights:

27-28 August | Massey University, Wellington

Dr. Linda Beale and Dr. Ian Muehlenhaus will teach fundamental and advanced geovisual analytics techniques to make data-driven decisions and gain geographic insight from many datasets at once. These techniques and workflows can be used to conduct deductive, scientific research (e.g., research question first, data acquisition second), inductive (more exploratory in nature, allowing theory to emerge from data) or big-data research, in which you are trying to find a signal in the noise. When done, you will possess an understanding of the fundamentals of geovisual analytics (i.e., interactive data exploration) and all the skills you need to use ArcGIS Insights to solve real-world problems and geographic quandaries.

This workshop is designed for those wanting to learn geovisual analytics techniques to make data-driven decisions and gain geographic insight from many datasets at once.  General knowledge of cartography, GIS, and basic statistics will be useful.
