Third International Joint Workshop on Ubiquitous, Pervasive and Internet Mapping (UPIMap2008)


Shepherdstown, West Virginia, USA


September 10 - 11, 2008 (immediately following AutoCarto2008)



The ICA Commissions on Ubiquitous Mapping and Maps and the Internet announce a workshop in USA, at the beginning of September 2008. The workshop is sponsored by the Commission on Ubiquitous Mapping, the Commission on Maps and the Internet. The ICA Commissions were formed in 2003 and 1999 respectively in response to the rapid growth in the use of electronic networks to make and distribute maps and spatial data, and the rapid diffusion of new mobile devices. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together international specialists in the field of Mobile Mapping, Location Based Services and Internet Mapping, and to disseminate information to a broader audience on new developments and major areas of research.


UPIMap2004 in Tokyo included visits to the Tokyo metropolitan traffic control center and the VICS (Vehicles Information Control System) center for car navigation system and on-site demonstrations of commercial human and car navigation systems using cellular phone and in car systems. Similar activities were held at UPIMap2006 in Seoul. At UPIMap2008 we will be able to discuss the globalization and localization of UPIMap in the context of different cultures and environment for systems. We will have on site demonstrations of different application systems using the vast terrain of the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC). More details of the workshop will be available at the Web
