This volume comprises most of the research papers presented at the 6th International Symposium of the ICA Commission on the History of Cartography which took place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 13–15 October 2016. As such, it is already the fourth volume in a series of proceedings which has been made possible through the partnership between the International Cartographic Association (ICA) and Springer International Publishing. The papers published in this volume discuss the historical dimension of the dissemination of cartographic knowledge and the effectiveness thereof in diverse cartographic cultures and their related user groups around the globe. This includes the technological and conceptual aspects of cartographic production (maps, charts, globes, atlases, educational tools, etc.), the usability of these techniques and the resulting products, as well as the conditions of the map trade as a changing network of private enterprises and official institutions, and the role of diverse audiences in the creation, circulation, consumption, and ultimate preservation of knowledge.
