The 21st Cartographic School, Satellite technologies in GIS and cartography, focuses on four general topics. The first one reads: "Satellite geodetic techniques and their application in cartography". The second topic concerns spatial analyses of selected features of the natural environment supported by satellite images of the Earth. The third one aims at presenting remote sensing and photogrammetry as key tools for supporting a process of map production and spatial analyses in GIS. The fourth topic is: "Geoinformatics, geomatics, geoinformation – new multidisciplinary research fields and their associations with satellite techniques used for observing the Earth".

Additional Information

Oral presentations are reserved for invited speakers, and a full list of experts will be provided at a later date. Contributed presentations – fitting a broad conference topics – are also welcome, however they will be automatically classified as posters. The Scientific Organising Committee will read abstracts, the submission of which is expected by 15 February 2012, and make a decision on acceptance or rejection. The information on decisions will available by 20 February 2012. We kindly invite the participants to submit their abstracts. The authors of invited lectures as well as contributed poster presentations will be given a chance to submit their manuscripts to a special issue entitled “Satellite technologies in GIS and cartography” of “Pure and Applied Geophysics”, the journal published by Springer Birkhäuser Basel and indexed by Thomson Reuters Scientific with impact factor (2010) of 1.091. Every paper, written in correct English, will be reviewed by at least two referees, which is in accordance with strict quality standards adopted by “Pure and Applied Geophysics”. It is thus possible that certain manuscripts may be rejected. Rejected manuscripts may be given an additional chance for publication, however the second attempt will be associated with submission to “Czasopismo Geograficzne” (“Geographical Journal”), the Polish journal focusing on original papers in geosciences. Such submissions are also expected to be written in correct English, and a decision on publication will be based on a separate review procedure.
