The Commission on Neocartography held its first official meeting following the annual conference of the Society of Cartographers in London earlier this month. The meeting was organised very openly – speakers were invited to “think broadly, and be interesting.” And interesting they were. Six talks shed light on the term of neocartography itself, as well as interesting and potential developments in the field – from psychogeography to experiential engagement.

The meeting is very well documented, so if you didn’t have a chance to attend, you are very welcome to…

Feel free to catch up and join the disucssion at neocartography.icaci.org.

Many thanks to Steve Chilton and the team from UCL for the smooth and friendly organisation of the event.
