A full and engaging programme has been planned for GeoCart'2022! The format will be familiar to previous attendees. Two Keynote addresses will be held each day in the main auditorium. Morning and afternoon paper presentations will be split between two concurrent sessions. Other highlights include the second NZCS Young Geospatial Competition lightning talks, a poster session, the NZCS Map Awards judging ceremony, and the always popular special talks and social functions.

Wednesday evening will feature the Ice Breaker reception, this year to be held at the Backbencher Gastropub. The Gala Dinner will commence on Thursday at 6 pm at The Queen's Wharf Ballroom.  On Friday, to conclude the week, will be a brand new networking session and one or two fun excursions around Wellington.

GeoCart conferences are a wonderful venue to meet and get to know New Zealand's cartographic and geospatial community. Come join us and experience all the great things on offer at GeoCart'2022.
