Papers, exhi- tions and installations supplied a discussion board for appreciating the endeavors of artists and cartographers and their representations of geography. in addition to indulging in an expansive and expressive celebration attendees have been in a position to re? ect on their lonesome paintings and talk about comparable parts in each one other’s paintings. It additionally allowed cartographers and artists to debate the potential of collaboration in destiny learn and improvement. To realize the signi? cance of this occasion, paper authors have been invited to additional improve their paintings and give a contribution chapters to this ebook. We think that this publication marks either a signi? cant celebration in Vienna and a place to begin for destiny collabo- tive efforts among artists and cartographers.

As long as a map is created and methods for archiving exist, the task of cartography seems to be fulfilled. The question for and work on impact, individual understanding and progressive linguistics barely occur. Thus the evolution of pictorial landscapes seems to have reached its end. This contribution faces the question if there is still a perspective for landscape painting in cartographic science – or have we really reached the end of pictorial 44 Markus Jobst landscape evolution in cartography.

What is clearly evident in cartography is that the visual and semantic properties of reality are transformed: the ‘viewpoint’ is not realistic (it is orthographic and geometrical transformations are applied to effect it), the real-world features are generalised and symbolised, there is no attempt to give a feeling of immersion, and the viewer’s perception is challenged by the symbolised representation which results from the cartographer’s creativity. To me, therefore, it is clear that cartography is primarily a set of transformations of spatial data, and the cartographic process is consequently data-driven.

Maps and globes are indeed tools, too. However, rather than simply indicating a direct impact or a 2 Elisabeth von Samsonow: In situ oder in motu? In: Umzug ins Offene loc. , p. 252 38 Felicitas Thun-Hohenstein (sculptural) modeling, they delineate the functionality of orientation, travel, motion, velocity, migration and emigration and situation in local spatial structures. We now move toward a conceptual and discursive alternative that follows suit with critiques of dualistic thought, as established in the work of Florenskij, Schmitz and von Förster in modernity.
