This sessions invites abstract discussing aspects and perspectives related to the context of a Body of Knowledge for Cartography.
Cartography as a scientific discipline has no explicitly produced consolidated Body of Knowledge (BoK). However, you find a lot of resources covering cartographic knowledge, such as the UCGIS BoK, initiatives in Europe, textbooks, web-based materials and others. In this session the questions are raised, if a consolidated, openly accessible and sustainable Body of Knowledge is needed for a discipline like cartography, how could this be eventually conceptualized to make it a community-driven and sustainable approach and who/which organisation could play a role as a facilitatior of such a process.
