Specific topics include: (1) Given the emergence of readily available and dynamic geovisualization online, "What is the future of the Map?" (2) As more parts of daily lives are captured via mobile phone records, CCTV and, most intriguingly, geotagged social media, "What is the future of the mappable?"; (3) Given the emergence of new types of maps and new data on human experience that can be mapped, How do we continue to teach the key theories and questions in mapping? And (4) As online education becomes a standard tool of pedagogy, How do we ensure that we provide quality mapping education in online settings?
