The symposium on Service-Oriented Mapping aims to be a multidisciplinary event, spanning from computer science to geobusiness. 

The aim is to bring together various stakeholders in the area of Service-Oriented mapping (data producers, mapping agencies and companies, infrastructure providers, software developers, cartographers, artists, ...) in order to discuss the influence of this new production environment (the networked spatial infrastructure and its service-oriented distribution) on the map production and the perspectives of the new paradigm for research and development in cartography.
