“The World of Maps” now available in French and Spanish

By |February 26th, 2015|0 Comments

Spanish version of The World of Maps availableAlthough the International Map Year 2015/16 will be launched officially at the ICC 2015 in Rio de Janeiro later this year, activities are planned and shaped already in several countries.

That is why it is good to announce that a Spanish version of the accompanying book “The World of Maps” has been made available on the IMY website. The translation to Spanish of the book was done under the supervision of Pilar Sanchez-Ortiz from ICA’s Spanish national member organisation SECFT. With this, the most useful book as source for understanding and disseminating the role of maps is available to all those being interested in cartography in the Spanish speaking world. The book is also translated to French under supervision of Francois Lecordix at the French Cartographic Association.

Muy bien!
