International Master of Cartography students at Otto Neurath exhibition

Together with our students of the International Master of Cartography, we visited the Otto Neurath exhibition “Sprechende Zeichen at the Wirtschaftsmuseum in Vienna. The exhibition is dedicated to Otto Neurath, founder of the Society and Economic Museum. Otto Neurath developed new graphics techniques during the First World War. He was a member of the philosophical Wiener Kreis and developed the Viennese method of image statistics to present statistics in an easily understandable, visual form.

Students from the Cartography Master meet students from Iowa State University

Thanks to Alenka Poplin and her students from Iowa State University for visiting our Research Division during spring break! Together with our students from the International Cartography Master program, they were introduced to the research field of emotion mapping and jointly conducted interviews in which they explored how Vienna is perceived by its inhabitants and where people find restorative places in the city.

This Is Not an Atlas ‒ eine globale Sammlung widerständiger Karten

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.

Workshop on Programming and Cartography in Berlin

The research group cartography is co-organizing the workshop “CODE/GEO/GRAPHIC” on the relationship of programming and cartography in Berlin on April 19, 2018.

In the workshop, we want to take a closer look at pieces of code used in cartographic projects. Participants are invited to present their experiences with programming for cartography and engage in an open discussion to identify research questions in an “unconference” format.

The workshop will take place on April 19, 2018 at Technologiestiftung Berlin. Registration as a presenter or participant is still open, and free!

Orienteering event for students

On Friday 9 June the Research Group Cartography hosted an orienteering event at Karlsplatz. Orienteering requires navigational skills to navigate from point to point whilst moving at speed. Our participants were given a specially prepared orienteering map which they used to find 17 control points. In total, 104 national and international students from Cartography, Geodesy, and Urban Plannung joint the event along a 2.1 km course.

Find your result here! Congratulations to the three best orienteerers:

  1. Brandstätter Max:  16:50
  2. Falkenstein Antonia: 17:26
  3. Oberroither Alexander: 18:50
