The Journal of Maps is currently inviting contributions for a special issue of the Journal of Maps Student Edition devoted to the production of university campus maps.
The aims are to:
- develop excellence in the production of campus maps, targeted at general (i.e. an entire student body) or specific (e.g. visually impaired) audiences
- promote the role of cartography within spatial disciplines
- encourage the use and cross-fertilization of ideas between GIS, cartography and graphic design in the production of static and interactive maps
- develop relationships between university and department level cartographic specialisms
The issue should encourage both students and instructors on GIS and cartography courses to submit high quality material for review and potential publication. The quality of campus mapping, between universities, is often variable and the outputs from this issue are potentially of practical use to a wide audience.
Submission Deadline: May 30th, 2008
Publication: End of 2008
