Location: Marriott Wardman Park: Virginia A

We discuss recent developments in GIS-based production of planetary geologic maps, international contributions to planetary mapping, the need for planetary maps in education and public outreach, the possibilities of planetary maps in Atlases, a contest for designing Exploration Zone maps for future human surface operations on Mars, and planetary maps designed for the age group of tweens.

A workshop for colleagues researching on topics related to pre-school and school cartography: teaching of basic map concepts for children and young people, school atlases and other cartographic materials for teaching activities, the role of the new technologies in the school cartography including the use of web-based cartographic solutions for the geovisualization of data as well as the use of GIS in schools. Members of the ICA Commission on Maps and Graphics for Blind and Partially Sighted People also participate in the workshop, extending the previously listed topics to the research activities developed for institutions dedicated to the teaching of blind and partially sighted children.
