  • New technologies and cartographic methods for GI visualization
  • New techniques for user applications: decision making, orientation, education, etc
  • New methods for education using Web cartographic applications
  • Cartography and Social Media
“Thematic Cartography for the Society” is prepared on the basis of the best 30 papers presented at the 5th International Conference on Cartography and GIS held in Albena, Bulgaria in 2014.
The aim of the conference is to register new knowledge and shape experiences about the latest achievements in cartography and GIS worldwide. At the same time, the focus is on the important European region - the Balkan Peninsula. The following topics are covered:User-friendly Internet and Web Cartography; User-oriented Map Design and Production; Context-oriented Cartographic Visualization; Map Interfaces for Volunteered Geographic Information;
Sensing Technologies and their Integration with Maps;
Cartography in Education. focus on user-oriented cartographic approaches.
