„SDI Days 2022“ began on October 19, 2022, with the opening of the exhibition "Descriptio oeconomiae - representations of economic contents on modern maps", in the premises of the State Archives in Zadar. The exhibition was organized by prof. Ph.D. Josip Faričić, who emphasized that the various cartographic representations presented on the exhibition (cadastral plans, topographical maps, maritime and other thematic maps) do not allow a complete reconstruction of economic features and processes, but they greatly indicate the meaning of maps as graphic representations of spatial data infrastructure that enabled the creation of a perception of space, understanding spatial relationships and interactions, but also managing spatial resources.
