Indian National Cartographic Association (INCA) is an inter-disciplinary institution, originally for professionals from Geographers and Cartographers, which is now extended to a host of premier public and private bodies. Cartography in India has seen many changes and with enhanced scope, rechristened as GIS or Geo-informatics. It is today a multifaceted and highly composite broad subject, rolling several disciplines and multi-dimensional association. INCA was established in 1979 at Hyderabad as its head quarters, with the following aims:
a) To foster cartographic research in the country
b) To co-operate with professional organisations of cognate disciplines and to promote interaction within an inter-disciplinary frame
c) To co-operate with International organisations with similar objectives
d) To foster co-operation between government and quasi government organisations, research institutions engaged in cartographic activities and their application
e) To hold an Annual Cartographic Congress at the national or International level
f) To take such measures as may help secure cartography its legitimate place in national life and enhance a sense of national responsibility and professional efficacy among all the professionals and academic people engaged in cartographic activities in its broad sense
Invitation for Sponsorship is invited for the Congress.
