Hello there fellow Cartos!

I'm new to the board but not Cartography. I had never heard of this Site until someone mentioned it at GISTECH 2007 in late April so I thought I'd give it a bash. I work for an Oil and Gas major in Aberdeen and we have a very active Geomatics and GIS/Carto group.

I like to share my experience and learn from others so expect some posts from me shortly. ;)

I'm particularly interested in Cartography with GIS and have been an ArcGIS user for many years. I'm sure we've all seen maps produced from GIS that make us cringe (as a cartographer) and its quite interesting too see the variety of results. On that point I'm all for standards and assisting people in making a good Map not just a GIS Map. I'm sure we all know the score there! :rolleyes:

look forward to learning and the banter.

Bye for noooooo!

Ah, a Scot! Welcome. There are quite a few GIS/carto members, and I think a few specializing in Gas/Oil work too, so you have found the right place.
