Introduction to Papers from the AutoCarto 2010 Conference


Usery, E. Lynn, Cartography and Geographic Information Science


The AutoCarto 2010 Conference was conducted November 14-16, 2010 in Orlando, Florida, United States, in conjunction with the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Technical Commission IV and the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Specialty Conference. The meeting was well-attended and provided a program of over 250 presentations and posters. The AutoCarto program included 65 oral presentations and 20 posters.

This special issue of Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS) includes 18 papers that were selected from the conference submissions through a comprehensive review process by the AutoCarto 2010 Program Committee. That process began with the 96 submitted abstracts for AutoCarto 2010. The Program Committee reviewed all the abstracts (three reviews per abstract) and made selections to be accepted as papers or posters. From those selected, 46 full papers were received. Prior to the conference, the Program Committee reviewed the 46 papers (two reviews per paper) to determine those of sufficient scientific merit to be considered for publication in CaGIS. Comments from the reviews were provided back to the authors at the AutoCarto 2010 Conference. Based on these review results and the feedback from presentations at the Conference, selected authors were requested to provide a final paper to be reviewed for this CaGIS Special Issue. Those final papers were again reviewed by the Program Committee to CaGIS standards with three complete reviews for each paper. From this review process, the Program Committee selected the 18 papers that appear in this special issue.

I personally thank the members of the Program Committee for their dedicated and excellent work for the AutoCarto 2010 Conference and this special issue of CaGIS. It is through their reviews of the abstracts, initial papers, and final papers that this special issue is possible.

This AutoCarto 2010 Special Issue of CaGIS begins with a thought-provoking paper, "Is There a Need for Neo-Cartography?" prepared from the keynote presentation at the Conference by Menno-Jan Kraak. This paper is included to introduce the issue and provide some new ideas about cartography. The remaining papers are organized in rough sections with three papers on map design, two on generalization, five on cartographic methods and algorithms, three that introduce new and novel approaches in cartography not commonly presented in the CaGIS Journal, and four papers on applications.

I express sincere thanks and admiration for my colleague and Program Director for the ISPRS and ASPRS parts of the conference, Dr. Marguerite Madden of the University of Georgia. Dr. Madden is president of ISPRS Commission IV and made sure the entire Program for the Conference was on track and of excellent quality. …
