The Canadian Insitute of Geomatics presents Cybercartography in the context of contemporary mapping.

The world of maps and mapping is being rapidly transformed. Recent technological developments have brought maps into the daily life of societies all over the world in unprecedented ways. The entire domain of mapmaking is experiencing a profound change in the way maps (re)produce territories. This change is the result of developments in industry, the open source community, community based initiatives as well as in academia, science and art. Cybercartography aims to capture and build on this diversity and to further explore the changing nature of maps. In January 2003 a multidisciplinary research team at Carleton University in Ottawa began to further develop a foundational paradigm for cybercartography. This paradigm will be presented and discussed, illustrated by examples developed in the context of the Cybercartography and the New Economy project.
