AutoCarto Archives

Since 1974, AutoCarto has been the premier symposium to showcase transformational research in cartographic and GIScience. This meeting continues to bring together cartographers, geographers, geospatial analysts, GIScientists, and others from around the world conducting research on the cutting edge of the geospatial sciences.

Esri campus
The Esri campus is the venue for AutoCarto 2020.

The AutoCarto symposium series, started in 1974, has a long history of bringing together people from academia, industry, and government agencies to share research and explore new ideas in cartography and GIScience.

The theme of AutoCarto 2020 is WhereNext. In this symposium, we not only look at where we are and where to go next, we also challenge the ideas of where and next in terms of meaning, communication, visualization, and reasoning in the new age of automation, robotic revolution, and artificial intelligence (AI).
