In light of continuing media changes signalled by the development of new forms of digital publication distribution, the return to traditional forms of large format publications, yet a continued ambivalence about the uses and benefits for atlases, we invite all interested in the future of atlases to consider submitting a presentation or paper to sessions on The Future of Atlases: Practices, Reflections, Potentials at the AAG 2020 in Denver Colorado (6-10April2020). We aim to consider a range of atlas-related work grouped around these three developments to enliven the discussion about the vibrant and broad, creation, use and consideration of atlases as a very evocative and stimulating type of publication and medium for crafting unique forms of geographic communication. The opportunity serves to exchange and discuss novel and reflective work concerning atlases and their future.
Presentation topics connected to atlases include:
The Futures of Atlases 2020 sessions are sponsored/endorsed by the ICA Atlas Commission and AAG Cartography Specialty Group.
