The Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CAGIS) invites the world of cartography and GIS to come to Washington, DC, July 2 to 7, 2017 for the 28th International Cartographic Conference of the International Cartographic Association. We are planning a fantastic conference that will draw upon all the resources of the nation’s capital. The National Galleries of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Geographic Society, and the Library of Congress will all play a role in making this a great conference.
We have selected the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel as the venue. Located in Northwest DC, it is on the Metro which provides easy access to all of the museums, shops, and restaurants across the entire District. In addition, the conference coincides with the national celebration of independence, which will make it a very festive time.
Come and join us for a great celebration of cartography!
The pioneering work of contemporary American artist Mary Edna Fraser has been collected and exhibited worldwide. Her large-scale artwork in the ancient medium of batik utilizes aerial photography, satellite imagery, and modern dye technology. In 1994-95, she was the first woman to be honored with a one-person exhibition at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. The National Science Foundation and National Academy of Science have featured Fraser’s collaborations, as have Duke Museum of Art and Emory University. Ms. Fraser’s work will be displayed in the Atrium of the Marriott Wardman Park during the 2017 ICC.
