My name is Chris Brackley, and I have been making maps for over 10 years. So deep in maps I have been, that I haven't taken the time to connect with the larger cartographic community. I am thrilled to have found this website, and look forward to discussions, conversations and insights.
I run a cartography business in Ontario Canada, focused on making maps which are environmentally, socially and artistically creative. We work primarily for non-profit organizations, our maps strive to boil often complex issues and connections down to simple graphic languge. Our last few years have been focused pointedly on refining our hill-shading and oblique (or bird's eye view) mapping techniques (see attached file for a quick example).

All the best,
