ICC Newsletters

International Cartographic Conference (ICC) newsletters were designed to keep the delegates updated with conference events and provide a record of ICC highlights.

ICC 1999 Newsletter

ICC 1999 Newsletter

At ICC 1999 held in Ottawa, 14 to 21 August, six newsletter were produced during the event, the first appearing on Monday, 16 August 1999 – the first day of the conference. They were available at 8am each day at the sites in the Ottawa Congress Centre and near the meeting rooms in the Westin Hotel, the ICC 1999 venues. Articles were published in English and French, as provided by the reporters. An additional post-conference edition was produced containing statistics from Ottawa ICC 1999, results from the International Cartographic Exhibition and Barbara Petchenik Children’s World Map awards, a photo-gallery from the event as well as an invitation to ICC 2001 to be held in Beijing.

The conference newsletter was also issued at the ICC 2003 held in Durban, 10-16 August. There were two issues published, first appearing on 13 August. It included highlights from the first few days of the conference programme.

We would appreciate hearing back from anyone that could help us in sourcing ICC newsletters from other ICA conferences if they indeed were issued.

ICC Posters

Posters are one of the traditions of the International Cartographic Conferences (ICC). They encapsulate the design flavor of a host nation and are visually engaging. They often incorporate cartographic elements making them unique and familiar. Some posters were produced exclusively for events run in conjunction with ICCs, such as the International Cartographic Exhibition, others to convey the conference theme.

Poster from ICC 1980

The earliest poster in our collection is from the ICC 1980 held in Tokyo. It was created for the International Exhibition on Cartography and Geography run in conjunction with the main conference. Its design, incorporating a stunning three-dimensional map, is captivating and uniquely Japanese. The Working Group also has posters from ICCs held in Barcelona (1995), Ottawa (1999), Durban (2003), A Coruña (2005), Paris (2011) and Dresden (2013).

We would appreciate hearing back from anyone that could help us in sourcing posters from remaining ICA conferences, as well as exhibitions, commission meetings and other ICA events.
