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 - draftsman at Watsons, an award-winning land surveying, civil engineering design and town planning company on the Mornington Peninsula.

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 also a member of the Dromana Presbyterian Church.

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

Other smaller web pages of mine:
Spatial Sciences
4WD Links (including maps)
Links to Christian groups
The End of Democracy in the West
How the Dystopia Novels are becoming reality
Daniel Andrews and coronavirus

Web pages of mine that are no longer maintained are as follows: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,  geopolitics, 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.
