International Conference: Historic Maps and Imagery for Modern Scientific Applications

Ralph Rosenbauer writes to point out the upcoming International Conference on Historic Maps and Imagery for Modern Scientific Applications, taking place in Bern, Switzerland from November 28 to 30, 2008. From the web site: “The conference serves as a platform for scientists of various disciplines applying historic maps and/or imagery for their research. Archaeologists who utilizing historic aerial imagery for mapping of surface features, historians working on terrestrial and urbanistic developments as well as geoscientists quantifying landscape evolution from historic maps are cordially invited to present their work. We also call upon scientists from geodesy and informatics to present aims and methods for digitizing and visualization of historic data, as well as anyone else working in related fields.”
