1st workshop on CartoAI: AI for cartography

Leeds, United Kingdom (on site and online)

September 12, 2023 (9:00 - 12:30)

Following the recent evolutions of cartography, and a successful workshop in 2022 on Computational Cartography and Map Generalisation with Deep Learning, this CartoAI workshop seeks to gather the researchers working on artificial intelligence techniques applied to cartography. For this workshop, contributions on all AI techniques are welcome including, e.g., machine learning, optimization, and multi-agent systems. The workshop will give the opportunity to the participants to give short presentations of recent and on-going research. It will also include a keynote and time for discussions.

The following topics are welcome:

  • Novel machine learning techniques applied to maps or to cartographic data
  • AI techniques for map generalisation
  • AI techniques for map schematization
  • AI techniques for text placement
  • Pattern recognition in maps
  • Cartographic style transfer
  • AI techniques for map vectorization and map label interpretation
  • Use of deep learning in cartography
  • Methods of unsupervised machine learning, including clustering and dimensionality reduction
  • Evaluation of AI techniques and results
  • Review of AI studies in cartography
