Sažetak
This volume comprises most of the research papers presented at the 6th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography which took place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 13-15 October, 2016. As such it is already the fourth volume in a series of proceedings which has been made possible through the partnership between the International Cartographic Association (ICA) and Springer International Publishing. The history of cartography covers a vast field of knowledge and includes all maps and map-like graphics made by humankind since prehistoric times. Map compilation and map use today are, however, seldom dependent on maps which were produced before early modern times. With this in mind, the ICA Commission decided to concentrate on the history of cartography since the Enlightenment – without neglecting research on earlier periods relevant to the understanding of modern cartographic developments. The 6th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography had as its general theme “The Dissemination of Cartographic Knowledge: Production – Trade – Consumption – Preservation”. Under the leadership of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography the Symposium was jointly organized with the ICA Commission on Map Production and Geoinformation Management and the ICA Commission on Use, User, and Usability Issues, and with the collaboration of the Institute of Social Sciences “Ivo Pilar” (Zagreb, Croatia). The various paper and poster sessions were held at the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies of the University of Zagreb which is situated in the heart of the historic city of Dubrovnik. The papers published in this volume discuss the historical dimension of the dissemination of cartographic knowledge and the effectiveness thereof in diverse cartographic cultures and their related user groups around the globe. This includes the technological and conceptual aspects of cartographic production (maps, charts, globes, atlases, educational tools etc.), the usability of these techniques and the resulting products, as well as the conditions of the map trade as a changing network of private enterprises and official institutions, and the role of diverse audiences in the creation, circulation, consumption and ultimate preservation of knowledge. Although the Symposium was primarily focused on the 18th to 20th centuries, it was also open to contributions on the sharing of cartographic knowledge during earlier centuries, as they often formed the background for later important developments.
