Mountain Cartography Workshop

The 8th Mountain Cartography workshop is being held in New Zealand later this year, immediately following the Geocart12 conference in Auckland.

The theme of the 2012 workshop is Mapping Mountain Dynamics — from glaciers to volcanoes.

The venue is The Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuit Centre  near Taurewa next to Tongariro National Park, and the dates are 1-5 September 2012.

Mountain Cartography workshops are  traditionally held biennially and hosted by different countries in remote alpine areas. This is the first time it has come to New Zealand and it provides a rare opportunity to meet and talk maps with some very influential cartographers.

The workshop is hosted by the ICA Commission on Mountain Cartography and the New Zealand Cartographic Society.
