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!
Our bi-annual International Cartographic Conferences are highlights on the cartographic calendar. It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Washington, DC, in the United States to participate in ICA’s 28th conference. It promises to be a unique and successful event. It will be unique because we will experience the developments in our discipline since the previous conference. These developments will be expressed in papers and posters and in exhibitions of maps and technology. Unique because Washington, DC, is the center of US cartography, and many organizations and companies will share their knowledge with us. Successful because you will be there too.
