Abstract [en]

Geospatial big data present a new set of challenges and opportunities for cartographic researchers in technical, methodological and artistic realms. New computational and technical paradigms for cartography are accompanying the rise of geospatial big data. Additionally, the art and science of cartography needs to focus its contemporary efforts on work that connects to outside disciplines and is grounded in problems that are important to humankind and its sustainability. Following the development of position papers and a collaborative workshop to craft consensus around key topics, this article presents a new cartographic research agenda focused on making maps that matter using geospatial big data. This agenda provides both long-term challenges that require significant attention and short-term opportunities that we believe could be addressed in more concentrated studies.

Abstract [fr]

Les Big Data géospatialisées représentent un nouvel ensemble de défis et d’opportunités pour les chercheurs en cartographie dans les domaines technique, méthodologique et artistique. Les nouveaux paradigmes informatiques et techniques en cartographie suivent la progression des big data géospatiales. De plus, les composantes artistiques et scientifiques de la cartographie doivent actuellement concentrer leurs efforts sur les travaux de mise en relation avec d’autres disciplines et se fondent sur des problèmes qui sont importants pour l’humanité et sa durabilité. A partir de papiers de position et d’un atelier collaboratif pour élaborer un consensus sur des sujets clés, ce papier présente un nouvel agenda de recherche en cartographie centré sur la fabrication de cartes qui comptent pour la société, conçues à partir de Big Data géospatiales. Cet agenda propose non seulement des défis à long terme qui requièrent une attention particulière mais aussi des opportunités à court terme qui, à notre avis, pourraient être traitées par des recherches spécifiques.
