National Report to the ICA 16th General Assembly
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Croatia has been a member of the International Cartographic Association – ICA since 1995 and one of its obligations has been to submit national reports about its cartographic activities to general assemblies held every four years. The bearer of these activities in Croatia is the Croatian Cartographic Society.

Croatia became a member of the ICA in Barcelona in 1995, where its first national report for the period 1991– 1995 was submitted. Reports were also submitted in Ottawa in 1999 for the period 1995–1999, in Durban (Republic of South Africa) in 2003 for the period 1999–2003, in Moscow in 2007 for the period 2003–2007, and in Paris in 2011 for the period 2007–2011. This report, which covers the period 2011–2015, will be submitted at the General Assembly of the ICA in Rio de Janeiro in 2015. As a result of this work, Croatia has a comprehensive overview of cartographic activities in the past 20 years, i.e. since it became an independent state.

The report is divided into the following sections: Official Cartography, Academic Cartography, Commercial Cartography and Other Activities. The report ends with Acknowledgments and a Bibliography.
A report such as this will never include all the activities of the preceding period. This is because not all parties responded to the invitation to collaborate. Nevertheless, the most relevant institutions and companies are repre­sen­­ted in the report. It is the result of individual contributions, and those people are listed in the Acknowledgments.

The list of references at the end of the report was based on data provided by collaborators on the report, searching the Croatian Scientific Bibliography database, and other sources.
