Hi All,

 

Just wanted to introduce myself to Cartotalk Forums. I am a geographer with 20 years in the GIS industry in BC, having worked mostly with ArcGIS, ER Mapper and a few landscape animation packages. For a long time I have wanted to switch gears from an analytical, pump out the operational maps, to more of a creative cartographic product. To that end I have purchased Illustrator and MAPublisher and am 90% happy with what I see so far. Hopefully when I figure out more of the tricks to Illustrator I will be 100% happy!

 

I look forward to feedback from the forums and helping out where I am able.

 

Cheers,

Shepherd

Welcome, Shepherd, from another westcoaster! (albeit, a little farther south)

You've come to the right place. :)

Yeah, West Coast is the Best Coast. Depending on where you are in BC, I might be your neighbor, right across the border in Bellingham, WA.

 

Welcome!

Bellingham has its place in GIS history - that was where the original SpatialDatabase Engine (SDBE) was developed - the software company was bought by ESRI and turned into ArcSDE later, if I remember correctly.

I guess Best Coast is much better than Wet Coast! But yes, I love it on the West Coast—best place on earth. I am in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, just up the coast from you Adam. I guess I should update my profile! Need to figure out how to get forum replies to come to my inbox as well or an rss feed or something!
