Forthcoming Meeting – ICC2019

The next meeting of the World Cartographic Forum will take place at the International Cartographic Conference (ICC2019) in Tokyo, on Friday 19th July from 12:30 to 13:30 in Conference Room 1 of the Plaza Heisei.

During the meeting, past presidents from NACIS (North American Cartographic Society) and BCS (British Cartographic Society) will deliver short presentations on their experiences in leading these societies.

Membership of the World Cartographic Forum is open to any broadly national cartographic/mapping society. Attendees at Forum meetings comprise society presidents (or their nominees) plus one other senior representative of each national-levelĀ cartographic/mapping society (i.e. a maximum of two representatives per society).

We look forward to seeing you in Tokyo!


Inaugural Meeting – ICC2017

The World Cartographic Forum was officially launched at the 28th International Cartographic Conference which was held in Washington, D.C. in 2017.

The Forum aims to bring together leaders of national mapping and cartographic societies from around the world to discuss common issues and to foster collaboration and the learning of new skills in our fast-changing field.
