CartoTalk Werner Beer: Renewing Alpine Club Cartography

We are happy to announce our next CartoTalk on Monday, 8 May 2017 by Werner Beer (Alpenvereinskartographie Innsbruck).

Abstract: More than 150 years ago the Alpine Club began to go its own way in cartography. With the onset of alpinism interest in the mountains grew as well as the need for adequate map material. Over the course of time the Alpine Club Cartography has evolved and enjoys a very good reputation in the field of high mountain cartography. In order to continue to meet expectations we are currently working on a comprehensive renewal. The lecture gives an insight into the workings of yesterday and today and shows approaches for the future.
