Current Approaches to Cognitive Cartography, Volume Nine emphasizes the growing importance of understanding cognitive structures in the use of modern cartographic media, a topic frequently expressed in current papers published by cartographers. Investigating cognitive impacts on map use requires established methods of experimental sciences to derive robust and reliable messages for the formation of theory in cartography Throughout the last decade, the international cartographic community has regularly highlighted the relevance of experimental studies for the future of a user-centered cartography. This book brings together current developments in the field of a user-oriented cognitive cartography.

Dr Dennis Edler is a senior lecturer (permanent staff member) at the Geography Department of the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB). Since 2012, he has been working on research projects linking key questions of cartography with theoretical approaches of cognitive psychology and methods of experimental psychology. In 2017, he was invited guest editor of a special issue "Methods and Applications of Empirical Cartography (Journal: Kartographische Nachrichten - Journal of Cartography and Geographic Information).
Dr Frank Dickmann is Professor of Cartography and GI Science at the Geography Department of Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB). Since 2007, he has supervised many research projects on cognitive visualization topics. He and his team published many international papers in the field of cognitive cartography.
