Hi everyone!
I'm looking forward to talking to you all and hopefully learn a few tips and pointers on how to refine my skills.

I'm a 24yr old grad of C.O.G.S. in Nova Scotia, Canada where I took the Cartography course. I just graduated last June (2004). Currently I am working as a Cad Operator for a surveying company in Alberta, Can. We mainly do work for the oil companies across the province.

I'm not sure what else you want to know more about me just ask!
Also if there are any COGS grads out there I'd love to here from you, and fill you in on how the school and teachers are doing. B)

What does C.O.G.S. stand for?

In anycase it's really nice to have a CAD operator on board. I sometimes get CAD files that require a bit of work to monkey with (esp. with projection issues), so there may be questions coming your way.

As for Cad questions if I can't help you I'm sure I can find someone who can.
I have only been drafting a year so I am still learning myself. :)
