About

Welcome!

I’m a geographer working in mass transit for over ten years. I specialize in geographic data and transit software applications. Posts, possibly characterized as rants at times, give me a chance to either blow off some steam or highlight a particular topic or just share information. The posts vary and may focus on some  topics more than others, but the speech is always linked to geography.

It might go without saying but I love maps. Both old and new appeal to me but I prefer the nostalgia of the old maps. Looking at an old map is like looking at the world or a place from the viewpoint of those who were alive when the map was made. Looking at a map is an enchanting experience for me. I imagine sailing the seas and climbing mountains in places I’ve never been.

Click around, drop a line or two and give something nice to a fellow geographer, share a post and tell them about this blog.

Cheers!
