Looking Ahead, 2015-2019

Viz_Header_1Welcome to the new website for the ICA Commission on Visual Analytics. Our Commission has been advancing the state of the art in geovisualization, geocomputation, spatial analysis, and analytical reasoning since its inception in 1995.

At the 27th ICC meeting in Rio, our Commission Terms of Reference were approved, as was a name change to the new title of “Commission on Visual Analytics.” We chose this new title with the aim of developing stronger ties between ICA activities and the ongoing research and development happening in the broader field of Visual Analytics.

We have an ambitious plan for Commission activities in the years to come. Our agenda for 2015-2019 will include conferences, workshops, online seminars, and other activities. In many of these activities, we will partner with the Commission on Cognitive Issues in Geographic Visualization, Commission on Use, User, and Usability Issues, and the Commission on Map Design.
