The fast exchange of information and knowledge are the essential conditions for successful and effective research and practical applications in cartography. For successful research development, it is necessary to follow trends not only in this domain, but also try to adapt new trends and technologies from other areas. Trends in cartography are also quite often topics of many conferences which have the main aim to link research, education and application experts in cartography and GIS&T into one large platform. Such the right place for exchange and sharing of knowledge and skills was also the CARTOCON2014 conference, which took place in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in February 2014 and this book is a compilation of the best and most interesting contributions.

The book content consists of four parts. The first partNew approaches in map and atlas makingcollects studies about innovative ways in map production and atlases compilation. Following part of the bookProgress in web cartographybrings examples and tools for web map presentation. The third partAdvanced methods in map useincludes achievement of eye-tracking research and users' issues. The final partCartography in practice and researchis a clear evidence that cartography and maps played the significant role in many geosciences and in many branches of the society. Each individual paper is original and has its place in cartography.
