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.
I live on the Mornington Peninsula and work from home.

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

Portfolio
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

Web pages of mine that are no longer maintained are as follows: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 a "Straight WASP Male", the type of person that the Socialists would like to have wearing a yellow cross ...

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

I have always been single, because I've never met any single nice ladies around my age, let alone Christian as well (do such people even exist?).
