Working Group on Inclusive Cartography

Welcome to our website!

Here maps not only navigate landscapes but also toward equity, accessibility, and inclusivity. As chair and vice chairs of this initiative, we are pleased to extend a

warm welcome to all who seek to engage in the transformative power of cartography for everyone.

Our mission

Our mission is to evaluate, extend and  – if needed – redefine traditional mapping practices by championing principles of inclusion, diversity, and accessibility.

In our pursuit, we aim to dismantle barriers that have long hindered marginalized communities from fully participating in and benefiting from the power of maps.

Within this website, you’ll uncover a wealth of information about our group’s activities, ranging from collaborative projects and research endeavours to educational resources designed to empower mapmakers and enthusiasts alike. We invite you to delve into the background and principles underpinning Inclusive Cartography.
