John's web page

You have come across John's web page.

My background is cartography (I have a degree from RMIT University) and I work as a survey - senior draftsman at Marshal Melbourne, a land surveying, civil engineering design and town planning company specialising in greenfield subdivision.
Projects for which I've been one of those at work doing the drafting include:

I live on the Mornington Peninsula and work from home most of the time.

Professionally, I'm a member of the Mapping Sciences Institute Australia and the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute.

Since late 2013, I have been expanding my spatial skills at home as well as at work, and examples of this are as follows:

I have also provided feedback to Melway since around 1996 and Vicmap (Spatial Vision Map Books and Vicmap maps/digital data) since 2006 by 'unofficial' field-checking of the maps, and am now using a handheld GPS to assist in this, combined with GIS.

Hobbies and Other
My main hobbies are astronomy and railways.
I'm a member of the Dromana Presbyterian Church.
I'm also a member of the Dromana & District Historical Society.

Photos from past holidays, daytrips, etc: Flickr albums.

Other smaller web pages of mine:
Spatial Sciences - mapping links
4WD Links (including maps)
Links to Christian groups
The End of Democracy in the West
How the Dystopia Novels are becoming reality
Bible Maps and Atlases
A Coronavirus Summary

Web pages of mine that are no longer maintained are as follows:
I do gardening and some cooking in my spare time.
Other interests are science & technology, aviation, civil engineering, military & intelligence, geography / geopolitics / politics, history and counter-factual history.
I'm a 4th-generation Australian (all my ancestors were free settlers) from a British background.

I'm also on LinkedIn for those of you who know me and are already on there.

I'm willing to bet $10 million that I'll never even be able to get on a date with single nice Christian lady around my age, let alone marry one.
As well, whatever women look for in men is something I haven't got, while I've got nothing going for me to attract women to me.
(so, can there be any truth in Genesis 2:18 & 24, then??)
