20th International Conference on the History of Cartography
15-20 June 2003 — Cambridge, Mass., and Portland, Maine

The conference was held in Memorial Hall, Harvard University (15-17 June) and in the Holiday Inn by the Bay, Portland (18-20 June). Pre-conference meetings of the International Society of Curators of Early Maps (ISCEM) and of the standing commissions on Education and the History of Cartography of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) were held at Memorial Hall on 14 June. The main coordinators were David Cobb (Harvard Map Collection, Harvard University), and Yolanda Theunissen and Matthew Edney (both of the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education, University of Southern Maine). A total of 321 people attended the conference, with 63 accompanying persons.

Six exhibitions were prepared in conjunction with the conference:

  1. “Cartographic Treasures at Harvard,” at Harvard Map Collection and Houghton Library, Harvard College Library, Harvard University.
  2. “Treasures of the Boston Public Library Map Center,” at Boston Public Library.
  3. “Mapping the Republic: Conflicting Concepts of the Territory and Character of the USA, 1790-1900,” at the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education, University of Southern Maine (no longer on-line – link to archived version).
  4. “Heavens on Earth,” at the Southworth Planetarium, University of Southern Maine.
  5. “The Shape of Maine: Drawing Boundaries, Mapping History,” at the Gallery of Maine History, Maine Historical Society.
  6. “Mapping Maine: Four Contemporary Views,” at the Portland Museum of Art.

Papers and entire sessions were solicited under five themes: a) cartography, states, and empires; b) cartographic literacy and culture; c) cartography and commerce; d) mapping the Americas; and, e) any other topic in the history of cartography. However, many papers fell under more than one theme, so the program committee did not organize sessions by theme.

A total of 41 (42?) posters and 80 (88?) papers were presented. Biographical statements for each presenter, and abstracts of all papers (in both English and French), were provided in a printed program. Seven of the paper sessions were specially organized sessions, and there were three workshops.

Workshops 20th ICHC

Historical Maps and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)

Organizer and presenter: Anne Kelly Knowles, Middlebury College, Vermont

This one-hour workshop presented a wide range of examples of how historical scholars in various disciplines are currently using geographic information systems (GIS) to examine historical maps, extract information from them, and use them as the basis for historical research.It emphasized that GIS technology is not always necessary and sometimes may actually be an obstacle
to acquiring or representing geographic information.Because of the ability of GIS to manage and analyze very large geospatial databases, however, it can be an excellent tool for tackling complex historical issues, such as the relative significance of human actions versus environmental conditions in causing the American Dust Bowl of the 1930s.The workshop then considered
issues arising from the use of GIS for history.The presenter used her GIS exploration of what Robert E. Lee could and could not see at Gettysburg, a key battle in the American Civil War, to illustrate several of workshop’s key points.

ICA Session Teaching the History of Cartography VI

The ICA Commissions on the History of Cartography and on Education and Training had a joint session on Teaching the History of Cartography at Harvard University’s Memorial Hall on June 14, 2003. Thanks to the local organizers of the international Conference on the History of Cartography, David Cobb and Matthew Edney, this prestigious venue had been secured. With about 50 participants the session had the following contributions:

  1. Krogt, Peter van der. The making of the new Atlantes Neerlandici: guidelines for making an atlas bibliography.
  2. Moser, Robert. The contribution of Jaime Cortesão to teaching the history of cartography in Brazil and Beyond.
  3. Alkhoven, Patricia. Searching for images of cartography: a short overview of portals and types of image databases, based on Dutch examples (read by Paul van den Brink).
  4. Akerman, James. Historic maps in K12 classrooms, a resource for teaching the geographical dimensions of American history.

The common denominator of these contributions was their educational aspect: Peter van der Krogt also used volunteers for collecting the required bibliographical data and these volunteers needed to be trained first. Jaime Cortesão was the first to provide formal courses on the history of cartography in Latin America. Patricia Alkhoven presented the Dutch websites selected as an educational resource, and this was also the central theme of James Akerman. The educational programme developed by the Herman Dunlop Smith Centre for the History of Cartography at the Newberry Library in Chicago really got the audience excited, and its impact would not only boost interest in the history of cartography in high schools but in cartography at large as well.

Tony Campbell, retired curator of the Map Room at the British Library, had developed a website for teachers in the history of cartography (http://www.maphistory.info/courses.html ) and he shortly discussed its objectives during the session.

The session chair, Ferjan Ormeling, indicated that in 2005, probably on July 1, a similar session on Teaching the History of Cartography would be organized in Budapest, Hungary, at the Cartographic Institute of the Eötvös Lorand University
