Über vier Jahre hat kollektiv orangotango sogenannte counter-cartographies – widerständige Kartierungen – aus der ganzen Welt zusammengetragen. Die Sammlung zeigt, wie kritische Karten gemacht und genutzt werden – als Teil von politischen Kämpfen, kritischer Wissenschaft, Kunst und Bildungsarbeit. Der kürzlich im Transcript-Verlag erschienene Atlas enthält auch einen Beitrag von Florian Ledermann zu einer Karte aus dem genderATlas.

On June 16, students of the International Master of Cartography were invited on a hike to Hermannskogel. The hill is not only the highest peak of Vienna but also a geodetic fundamental point. The small exhibition at Habsburgwarte gave some insights into its history as the kilometre zero of cartographic measurements in Austria-Hungary.
We are happy to welcome 24 students of the International Master in Cartography at TU Vienna for the summer semester 2018. This intake’s students come from 20 countries: Argentina, Bangladesh, China, Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Kenia, Kzakhstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Serbia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey and the USA.
After finishing their first semester at TU München, the students are now with us for their second semester, before they move to TU Dresden. We are really happy to have them here and wish them a fun & successful semester!

Dear colleagues and friends, we would like to thank you for the collaborations in 2017. We are looking forward to working with you in the upcoming year! Our best wishes for a pleasant holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
We would like to present you another wonderful student project from this summer semester created within the class Thematic Cartography, a third semester bachelor class for Spatial Planning students. The map is called Khalid’s Way and was created by Jakob Listabarth. He describes his work in the following way:
This map tells the story of Khalid’s journey from Yemen to Austria. It shows merely one personal refugee-story out of the countless other ones, which we normally only hear about through statistics, in newspapers, or from television.
Jakob Listabarth studies Spatial Planning at the Technical University of Vienna. Before that, he studied Information Design where he focused, among other things, on how to present facts in a more user-friendly way by using shapes and colours. Jakob’s passion is using his knowledge from both disciplines in order to tell socially relevant stories in an engaging way.
