Organized within the framework of the PEPRAV network(European Platform for alternative Practice and Research on the City), this workshop aimed to make first step to design the Tresor software, a tool for subjective and collaborative mapping. The participants – cartographers (professional or amateur), computer specialists, graphic designers, artists and architects- exchanged ideas and practices from their personal approach of mapping and thought about the possibility of creating a software that would allow connecting different kinds of maps and about the specifications that would be necessary to the making of that software as well as about the working and the visual aspect of its interface.

Interventions:
- Nicolas Malevé (Constant) et Pierre Huyghebaert (Speculoos) _ Interfaces of cartographic softwares.
