Our Commission Terms of Reference for 2015-2019 are as follows:
- Develop a new research agenda for visual analytics in cartography that couples key scientific and societal challenges in collaboration with related ICA Commissions
- Actively disseminate technical and methodological advances in cartographic visual analytics through workshops, seminars, and peer-reviewed publications – with linkages to other ICA Commissions and allied organizations in other fields.
- Conduct annual meetings to develop research in key thematic areas, partnering with international conferences and other ICA commissions to expand our reach beyond traditional venues and audiences.
- Maintain a dedicated web presence and engage with members via social media to highlight Commission activities and promote participation beyond attendance at in-person meetings through new forms of distance collaboration.
