Society of Cartographers
45th Annual Summer School
University of Southampton
7-9th Sept 2009
The University of Southampton was the venue for the 45th Annual Summer School, the 2009 conference of the Society of Cartographers. The lively and stumulating programme was well received with its well-established mix of keynotes, lectures, workshops, debates and networking.
The session themes for this year's conference included Emergency mapping, Ordnance Survey and its data, Transport mapping, Alternative data for users and Collecting and Using Crowdsourced Data. For more details see the programme pages, where there are links to some of the presentations given at the conference. Of general interest, there follows a link to a Google mash-up map of the locations of the delegates who attended the conference.
Our hosts Southampton University looked after us splendidly, special thanks going to local organiser Alex Kent. Copies of the delegate photograph below (A4 on satin photopaper) can be obtained upon request for a cost of £2.00 which includes p&p - contact Alex: A.J.Kent@soton.ac.uk
