This is the web home of International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Mapping from Satellite Imagery (CMSI).
For ICA's other commissions or working groups, please follow this link.
The Commission was established in 1999, and its role in this new era of widely accessible public tools for the production of image maps for many applications should be more relevant than ever. For the statement of the Commission's missions, please visit Terms of Reference.
The Commission is currently sponsoring several conferences, click here for the details.
For a list of the activities sponsored by the Commission, please visit here.
The Commission is currently creating a digital library to host research articles related to (1) analysis of existing and forthcoming satellite imagery in view of their potential inputs for producing and updating topographic and thematic maps and databases; and
(2) cartographic capabilities of different remote sensing systems. This is an on-going process, and you will see some updates after a while.
