Imre Josef Demhardt

  • Geographen des 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts ?sammelten auf ihren Reisen faszinierende Erkenntnisse, die sie in deutschsprachigen wissenschaftlichen Zeitschriften (wie Petermanns Geographische Mitteilungen) umfassend erläuterten. Demhardt interpretiert diese Forschungs aus heutiger Sicht, was war neu, was hat sich bewährt, was wurde umgestoßen an Erkenntnissen. Oftmals ist es erstaunlich, welches Wissen damals bereits vorhanden war und heute vielfach in Vergessenheit geraten ist.

  • Geographische Anthologie des 19. Jahrhunderts Auf den großen Erkundungsfahrten, die im 19. Jahrhundert einen glanzvollen Aufschwung erfahren hatten und maßgeblich an der Etablierung der wissenschaftlichen Disziplin der Geographie beteiligt waren, wurden wissenschaftliche Texte und detaillierte Karten erstellt. Von diesem als "geographisches Zeitalter" bezeichneten Jahrhundert gibt es etliche Artikel in geographischen Zeitschriften, die heute zum Teil nur noch schwer aufzufinden oder zugänglich sind. Diesen verborgenen Wissensschatz wieder zu heben, gilt das Interesse der Reihe Geographische Anthologie des 19. Jahrhunderts . Die Autoren bereiten Originaltexte und historisches Kartenmaterial für den modernen Leser durch aktuelle und zeitgemäße Erläuterungen auf und bieten so ein zuweilen vergessenes Panoptikum der Forscherfreudigkeit des 19. Jahrhunderts.Die Arktis, dieses riesige zumeist von Eis bedeckte Gebiet mit dem Nordpol als jahrhundertelangem Sehnsuchtspunkt, war im 19. Jahrhundert das Ziel einer Welle von Expeditionen, die schlussendlich zum Erreichen des Nordpols führten. Die Erkundung der Nordost- wie auch der Nordwestpassage sowie die Entdeckung von Franz-Josef-Land waren weitere bedeutsame Landmarken jener Zeit. Josef Demhardt focussiert sich in diesem Buch auf Auszüge aus dem von Carl Weyprecht in den Mitteilungen der k. k. Geographischen Gesellschaft in Wien verfassten Expeditionsbericht nach Franz-Josef-Land. Die eindrucksvollen Originaltexte, die der Autor kommentiert, nehmen auch den heutigen Leser gefangen und lassen ihn an diesen vergangenen Expeditionen teilhaben.

  • This book gathers 22 papers which were presented at the 6th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography in Dubrovnik, Croatia on 13-15 October 2016. The overall conference theme was `The Dissemination of Cartographic Knowledge: Production - Trade - Consumption - Preservation'. The book presents original research by internationally respected authors in the field of historical cartography, offering a significant contribution to the development of this field of study, but also of geography, history and the GIS sciences. The primary target audience includes researchers, educators, postgraduate students, map librarians and archivists.

  • This volume gathers 19 papers first presented at the 5th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography, which took place at the University of Ghent, Belgium on 2-5 December 2014.  The overall conference theme was 'Cartography in Times of War and Peace', but preference was given to papers dealing with the military cartography of the First World War (1914-1918). The papers are classified by period and regional sub-theme, i.e. Military Cartography from the 18th to the 20th century; WW I Cartography in Belgium, Central Europe, etc.

  • This proceedings book presents the first-ever cross-disciplinary analysis of 16th-20th century South, East, and Southeast Asian cartography. The central theme of the conference was the mutual influence of Western and Asian cartographic traditions, and the focus was on points of contact between Western and Asian cartographic history. Geographically, the topics were limited to South Asia, East Asia and Southeast Asia, with special attention to India, China, Japan, Korea and Indonesia. Topics addressed included Asia's place in the world, the Dutch East India Company, toponymy, Philipp Franz von Siebold, maritime cartography, missionary mapping and cadastral mapping.

  • This volume comprises the proceedings of the 2010 International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography.  The nineteen papers reflect the research interests of the Commission which span the period from the Enlightenment to the evolution of Geographical Information Science.  Apart from studies on general cartography, the volume, which reflects some co-operation with the ICA Commission on Maps and Society and the United States Geological Survey (USGS), contains regional studies on cartographic endeavours in Northern America, Brazil, and Southern Africa.The ICA Commission on Maps and Society participated as its field of study often overlaps with that of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography. The USGS which is the official USA mapping organisation, was invited to emphasise that the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography is not only interested in historical maps, but also has as mandate the research and document the history of Geographical Information Science.The ICA Commission on Maps and Society participated as its field of study often overlaps with that of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography.

  • This book comprises 17 chapters derived from new research papers presented at the 7th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography, held in Oxford from 13 to 15 September 2018 and jointly organized by the ICA Commission on Topographic Mapping and the Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford. The overall conference theme was `Mapping Empires: Colonial Cartographies of Land and Sea'. The book presents a breadth of original research undertaken by internationally recognized authors in the field of historical cartography and offers a significant contribution to the development of this growing field and to many interdisciplinary aspects of geography, history and the geographic information sciences. It is intended for researchers, teachers, postgraduate students, map librarians and archivists.
