Another CCA conference is hust about over. The last, session-packed day was filled with a number of interesting presentations, including discussions on the teaching of cartography/GIS, a look back at historical maps of Newfoundland and St. John's, and the scanning, georeferencing and analysis of historical maps.
The winner of the best student paper competition was announced. Paul Light, a student of the Centre of Geographic Sciences
, beat out 2 other students for his paper entitled "The Evolution of the Nautical Chart: 13th to 19th Century."
Thanks go to the conference organizers to a fabulous conference. Hope to see everyone in Ottawa in 2006.
