11th Conference on Cartography and Geoinformation

Miljenko Lapaine


8 – 10 May, 2015, Buzet, Croatia

The Croatian Cartographic Society organized the 11th Conference on Cartography and Geoinformation in Buzet (Croatia) from May 8 to 10, 2015. By organizing the conference during the International Map Year (IMY), the Croatian Cartographic Society wanted to contribute to the development of geoinformatics, cartography and related fields. A wide range of topics and renowned invited lecturers guaranteed interesting lectures and a contemporary approach.

The conference was held in the Fontana hotel, situated in the centre of Buzet, a city in Istria with approximately 6000 inhabitants. Buzet is located in the northernmost continental part of Istria, between three large cities: Rijeka, Trieste and Pula. The area is very diverse, with altitudes from 10 m to more than 1000 m, meaning the climate varies significantly, from Mediterranean climate in the valley of Mirna River to continental climate in the mountainous part of Ćićarija. The old city of Buzet is located at 150 m high hill above the valley of Mirna, while the newer part of the city, Fontana, develops in the foothills. Buzet is famous for its truffles.

The conference was endorsed by the International Cartographic Association – ICA, Croatian Academy of Engineering and the Istria County. The conference lasted for three days and there were about 60 participants.
