International Map Industry Association and Directions Magazine Announce .MAP Conference

March 25, 2013, Glencoe, Ill., and Mission Viejo, Calif.—In 2013, the International Map Industry Association (IMIA) and Directions Magazine will collaborate on a new event that brings the world of mapmakers together. The conference, serving also as the IMIA’s annual event, will be held September 8 - 10 at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The objective of the conference is to gather professionals engaged in creating maps and mapping applications from both the print and digital world to explore new ways to deliver content, derive revenue and design maps for a new audience in Web, mobile and print. Mapmakers of the world will gather in one place to exchange ideas on how to better serve a growing audience for geographic information and present that information in a variety of formats including digital print, 3D printing, Internet portals and mobile form factors.

“As more people find new ways to use geographic information, the responsibility to present that information in an understandable way rests with professionals in our community,” said Joe Francica, editor in chief of Directions Magazine. “Digital mapmakers must make certain that applications for mobile form factors and social networking apps adhere to cartographic standards. As such, there will be new methods of publishing and new business models to consider.”

“The new event is a tremendous opportunity for our membership to bring our collective knowledge of mapmaking to a new audience of digital cartographers working in Internet and mobile mediums,” said David Knipfer, president of IMIA (Americas).

More information about the conference for exhibitors and sponsors as well as the agenda can be found at the conference website (www.mapconference.net)
