Maps are not just lines, points, and symbols assembled as pictures. Maps constitute one of the most powerful cognitive vehicles to explore and describe the world, but also to express ourselves metaphorically. The world of ubiquitous computing is now full of enthusiastic “cartographers”. The way people interact with technology, the shift from the “god’s eye view” to any perspective in viewing space, and the necessity of employing cartographic means to make sense out of big data, have introduced the need to shift the paradigm of cartography and geovisualization to cybercartography. This involves the development of an innovative cartographic language, multisensory representations, multimodal interaction, and tools that enhance spatial literacy and develop truly map-minded spatial citizens.

Following last year’s CYBERCARTOGRAPHY 2021 Workshop, the 2022 Workshop aims at bringing together scientists to present innovative approaches, existing projects, technological tools, and to discuss emerging research questions related to Cybercartography.
