The SOC Annual Summer School Conference is open to members and non-members and creates an ideal opportunity to attend cartographic lectures exhibitions seminars and workshops as well as to visit a broad spectrum of mapping establishments. The friendly and relaxed atmosphere is a pleasant and stimulating way to keep up to date with new mapping and geomatics technology. It is especially beneficial for those working within small units or freelancers who can particularly benefit from the informal discussions and exchange of ideas with fellow mapmakers.
