The Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) invites you to the 43rd CCA Conference at the Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS), Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia from Wednesday, May 30 – Saturday, June 2, 2018. 

This year’s conference theme “Community Mapping – Place Making Through Maps offers a forum for sharing place-based knowledge and placing it alongside a broader scientific context. As in other parts of Canada, we can all benefit from ‘two eyed seeing’. (Maher, 2017) Read more about Bob Maher’s community mapping vision at his blog Ernest Blair Experiment.

This four day event will kick off with technical sessions and icebreakers followed by two days of presentations, CCA meetings, orienteering event, dinner with flavors from the Annapolis Valley, and opportunity to tour Grand-Pré and local wine region.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Michael Goodchild, Emeritus Professor of Geography, UCSB, Marcel Morin – Lost Art Cartography and COGS alumni Edie Punt and Clint Loveman from ESRI, Redlands.

CCA is a passionate group promoting interest in maps and cartographic material and creating opportunities to network and share ideas. We look forward to seeing you at COGS in May.
