mountain cartography

Since 1998 ICA Mountain Cartography Workshops have traditionally been held in the mountains, sometimes at elevations above 1000 meters. But with the 11th workshop in May 2018, we moved the venue to sea level, meeting on Hvar, an island off the Dalmatian coast. Here, the rocky landscape, high cliffs, peaks rising to 600 meters, steep ravines, and isolated islets with deeply indented coves reminded us that Hvar Island is in fact the top of a submerged mountain ridge, part of the Dinaric Range. The beautiful setting—white limestone rocks contrasting with blue sky and the even deeper blues of the Adriatic Sea—provided inspiration for the 44 participants from 13 countries attending the workshop. The workshop theme was “Mapping for Outdoor Activities in Mountains.” The 34 presentations found in this publication showcase the diversity of mountain cartography—from the summit of Mount Everest to the bottom of the oceans—and with many places in between. Topics include automation, recreation, caves, volcanoes, islands, relief presentation, glaciers, mountain safety, education, and visualization. Given that cartography is a graphical field, illustrations are abundant throughout. Twelve presentations are reviewed papers and ten are extended abstracts. The remaining twelve, which were published as reviewed papers elsewhere in scientific journals, are included in this volume only as short abstracts. We strongly believe that the articles offered in these pages will spur readers to further conduct research and professional activities in the field of mountain cartography. As the commission chairs, we wish to thank the participants and contributors who have made this publication possible. Speaking for ourselves and all workshop participants, we would like to thank Dražen Tutić, Faculty of Geodesy, University of Zagreb, for preparing this valuable publication and also for hosting a well-organized workshop together with Milo Tadić, Matjaž Štanfel and Ana Kuveždić Divjak.
