This book is in production.
Designed as an atlas, the maps, statements, and biographies of contributors illustrate the range of perspectives on the SDGs and their motivations for establishing a sustainable world.
The book "SDGs in action - a generations view" gives institutions, NGOs and educational institutions an idea of the views of different generations on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This book “Service Oriented Mapping 2012” presents diverse aspects of modern map production and geobusiness that were collected during the first Symposium on Service Oriented Mapping from November 22nd to 23rd 2012 in Vienna. The content of the book may give the impression that it is inhomogeneous and this is true. Important stakeholders qualified within the double-blind peer review process by an international program committee. The contributions based on varying backgrounds and experiences of participating stakeholders were orchestrated for this interesting topic on “service oriented mapping”.
The book consists of seven sections with several chapters. 37 chapters all together, which highlight the current situation and experiences of service-oriented mapping. An additional hands-on workshop section with 12 lectures introduces the reader to webmapping and geo web services.
The sections are “Introduction to Service-Oriented Mapping”, the “Diversity of Service-Oriented Map Production”, “Selected Use Cases”, “Advanced Perspectives of Service-Oriented Mapping”, “Geobusiness Considerations and Perspectives”, “Service-Oriented Atlas Applications” and the “Cookbook on Webmapping and Geo Web Services”.

Service-Oriented Mapping is one main paradigm to embed big data and distributed sources in modern map production, without owning the sources. This architecture requires specific frameworks, tools and procedures in order to be stable and reliable. Beside the technological structures, the organisational aspects as well as aspects of supply chain and GIS capability maturity provide powerful tools to make modern geoinformation management successful.
The technological perspective of modern map production involves IT architects, programmers, designers, GI professionals and cartographers. The domains and their knowledge accumulate for the use cases of spatial data acquisition, spatial data mining, spatial information creation and processing as well as geodesign.
This book compiles various perspectives related to modern map production. The main focus of attention is the new paradigm of “sharing and reuse”, which uses a decentralized, service-oriented access to spatial data sources.
The intention of this book is to shape the opinion of affected parties and to bring together various disciplines. Therefore adjacent chapters will generally deal with information technologies, Service-Oriented Architectures, cybercartography, reproduction and historic cartography, which all together can be subsumed in prospective cartographic heritage.
The survival of this digital cartographic heritage will base on long-term preservation strategies that make use of intensive dissemination on the one hand and sustainable digital archiving methods on the other. This includes a massive development of paradigm that expands from “store-and-save” to “keep-it-online”.
The paradigm “store-and-save” is mainly used for analogue masters that consist of storage media, like vellum, and their visible content. Avoiding the storage media from degeneration in climate-controlled areas will help to keep the content accessible. In the digital domain the high interdependency of storage media, format, device and applications leads to the paradigm “keep-- online” which for example describes the migration to new storage devices. In fact this expansion of paradigm means that the digital domain calls for ongoing actions in order to preserve cartography for a long term.
