NACIS 2013

Greenville, SC
October 9-11, 2013
Hyatt Regency Greenville


Talks, Posters, Demonstrations, Round Tables, Panels, and Workshops

There are many ways you may participate! You are invited to submit proposals to organize custom sessions, panels, discussions, and workshops. Talks, papers, posters, and demonstration proposals are welcome until June 15th. We will entertain all creative ideas!


Our enduring passion is to render our social, economic, political and natural world intelligible and actionable through visual story and cartographic design.

We are a creative design-oriented group that for over thirty years has provided a forum spanning the diversity of the mapmaking, geospatial & data visualization communities. We are specialists from government, commercial, and not-for-profit fronts along with academics, scholars, map/GIS librarians, artists, and students. Be there for the dynamic discussions rich in techniques, theory, history, and the state of our art. Please join us!


This year’s theme is data and data-driven map stories. Cartographers rely more than ever on technology and data science to craft engaging and informative narratives. As geographic data gets bigger, how can we find and follow the story arc? How can we use technology to make the humble spreadsheet or personal narrative interactive and read just as well online as in print?


In addition to the main Thursday and Friday conference, we offer several special programs.

  • Practical Cartography Day  Join professional cartographers and scholars for this popular all-day session. Come prepared to share in their insightful solutions to everyday cartographic conundrums.Mamata Akella and Andy Woodruff
  • Cartographic and Geographic Data Collections  This all-day session will focus on innovative ways cartographic and geographic data collections are being managed and disseminated. Abraham Kaleo Parrish and Tsering Wangyal Shawa
  • Exhibits Gallery - Display your latest creation for all to ponder throughout the events. Daniel Huffman
