Review current terms related to cartography and propose new terms and updated definitions to current terms as appropriate.
Investigate Body of Knowledge for related sciences and consider those parts relevant to CartoBoK.
Identify the core knowledge and concepts of Cartography (what a cartographer should know) and associate those in connection with related sciences/disciplines. Involve ICA Commissions in the work.
Evaluate and include findings from the revised research agenda and other future trends documents.
Present a conceptual model for the organization of CartoBOK at ICC in Florence. Get acceptance of the model to carry on with detailed framing of CartoBoK.
Collect, review, and publish individual contributions to the CartoBoK and develop a procedure for updating and refining the CartoBoK to make it a dynamic, living document. This process should be carefully handled by an editor.
Keep the Cartographic community updated on the progress in the development of CartoBoK through a web-site. Eventually the Body of knowledge for Cartography will be communicated through this web-site.
