I'm in the publications and graphic design department of the Northern Territory Geological Survey (Australia). Although I don't have a cartography background (a degree in politics and journalism!) I've been doing a lot of work in Illustrator CS2 and MapInfo creating figures for our publications and have found CartoTalk to be a great source of advice and scripts. I just downloaded Nick's 'Select Text Attributes' script for Illustrator and it's tip top. Anything that automates the process, I'm interested!
Cheers,
Kath (kajoh)

Hi Kath, and welcome to Cartotalk.

If you like Nick's script, keep an eye out for Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso's work. He's previewed a text-selection-by-attributes script/plugin that is just awesome. I believe it's due in early 2009.

Not only that, but I have a notion that there have been a bunch of female new members lately, to weigh up the tilted gender-balance - at least among the regulars.

The business of Cartography or GIS is male dominated but we sure have a sizable presence. This is probably because in older times surveyers were primarily males, however with the digital cartography more and more of us will be joining, hopefully :rolleyes:

Welcome Kath—keep an eye out here fo plenty of other tips and inspiration.

Fantastic?! :P (Just a little light hearted down-under Trans-Tasman rivalry for those from 'up above')

Not only that, but I have a notion that there have been a bunch of female new members lately, to weigh up the tilted gender-balance - at least among the regulars.


The Carto team I work for is three and a manager and I'm the only male!
