The Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) promotes the study, use, and development of maps and cartography. One of the ways that we strive to achieve this goal, is through the publication of a peer-reviewed journal (Cartographica) that publishes original research, reviews, and commentary on all aspects of cartography and geographic information science.
Cartographica is a platform that allows researchers to share their latest findings and ideas with the broader cartographic community. It offers a space for the presentation of original research and fresh perspectives on the creation, design, utilization, cognitive comprehension, and cutting-edge use of maps across various disciplines such as arts, cartography, computer science, economics, engineering, geography, history, medicine, health and surveying.
It is a valuable resource for cartographers, geographers, GIS specialists, and other professionals working in the field of mapping and spatial analysis.
Submitting an article is an excellent way to share your research with a wide audience of experts and to contribute to the advancement of the field of cartography.
The Editoral team are welcoming submissions for their upcoming special issue on Natural Hazards. Original research in all aspects of Cartography as it relates to natural hazards may be considered, including mapping/tracking events as they unfold, mapping the impact post event, or how the impact may be disseminated to decision makers, impacted citizens and/or the broader public.
By publishing in Cartographica, authors can gain recognition and visibility within the cartographic community and contribute to their professional development. Additionally, The journal is indexed in various databases that allows the authors to gain visibility and credibility with their research.
In summary, Cartographica is a respected journal in the field of cartography and GIS that offers an excellent platform for researchers to share their work with the broader community. Submitting an article to Cartographica is a great way to contribute to the advancement of the field and to gain recognition as an expert in your field.
Submissions are due February 20, 2023.
