I have absolutely no qualifications in cartography, geography (a GCSE in 2 months...), geology or graphics and have very little experience of anything, let alone cartography. However, I do learn quickly. I'm particularly interested in aerial photography and general maps, such as Ordnance Survey Landrangers and Explorers and AA Road Atlases.

I'm relatively good at maths and physics and so my amateur speciality will probably end up being map projections and GPS related things. I'm interested in most things in the world and as such have developed my skills for researching information to an above average level. As such, I'll try and do my best to help those in need.

My other interests include gliding, flying, musical performance, aviation history/regulations/information, Combined Cadet Force and reading.

Hi Spock. Perhaps you could combine your love of maps and interest in aviation/Cadets- RAF Air Cartographer ;)
