LGC - overviewThe Laboratory on Geoinformatics and Cartography (LGC) was established in 1992. LGC follows in the tradition of education in the field of GIS established at the Department of Geography (Masaryk University, Faculty of Science) already in the early 1980s, when it was the first institution in the former Czechoslovakia and in the entire former Eastern Block to do so. LGC extended already existing education programs with research in GI-science area. In the course of time, LGC has specialized in geographic cartography, issues related to creation of spatial data infrastructures, cartographic generalization and the role of cartography and geoinformatics in an information and knowledge-based society. Current research is focused on contextual, mobile and sensory mapping, and development of geovisualization methods for decision-making support...

ICA - overview

The International Cartographic Association (ICA) is the world authoritative body for cartography, the discipline dealing with the conception, production, dissemination and study of maps. The mission of ICA is to promote the discipline and profession of cartography in an international context. The Association works with national and international governmental and commercial bodies and with other international scientific societies to achieve these aims:

.

  • to contribute to the understanding and solution of world-wide problems through the use of cartography in decision-making processes.
  • to foster the international dissemination of environmental, economic, social and spatial information through mapping.
  • to provide a global forum for discussion of the role and status of cartography.
  • to facilitate the transfer of new cartographic technology and knowledge between nations, especially to the developing nations.
  • to carry out or to promote multi-national cartographic research in order to solve scientific and applied problems.
  • to enhance cartographic education in the broadest sense through publications, seminars and conferences.
  • to promote the use of professional and technical standards in cartography.

UNOOSA - overviewUNESCO - the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was founded on 16 November 1945. For this specialized United Nations agency, it is not enough to build classrooms in devastated countries or to publish scientific breakthroughs. Education, Social and Natural Science, Culture and Communication are the means to a far more ambitious goal : to build peace in the minds of men.

Today, UNESCO functions as a laboratory of ideas and a standard-setter to forge universal agreements on emerging ethical issues. The Organization also serves as a clearinghouse – for the dissemination and sharing of information and knowledge – while helping Member States to build their human and institutional capacities in diverse fields. In short, UNESCO promotes international co-operation among its 193* Member States and six Associate Members in the fields of education, science, culture and communication.
*As of October 2007

EC-JRC - overviewThe European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) is a department (Directorate-General, DG) of the European Commission providing independent scientific and technological support for EU policy-making. It works closely on the development of EU legislation with the relevant Commission services, such as the Agricultural, Enterprise, Environment, and Health and Consumer Protection DGs. Knowledge comes from specific application- and issue-oriented research within the seven JRC Institutes and close co-operation with over 1000 public and private organisations in 150 networks in Member State and applicant countries. The JRC also liases with non-EU and global scientific and standard-setting bodies.
