John's web page

Please note - as part of my move to NBN, this page is being moved to:

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.

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.
Railways - I'm a member of the Light Railway Research Society of Australia.

I'm also a member of the Dromana-Mornington 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
Bible Maps and Atlases

Web pages of mine that are no longer maintained are as follows:
I do cooking and gardening in my spare time.
Other interests are science & technology, aviation, civil engineering, military & intelligence,  geopolitics, history and counter-factual history.
I'm a 'Straight WASP Male' from a conservative background.

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

I have always been single, because I have never met any single nice ladies around my age (let alone Christian as well). This is no surprise when you note how often feminists demonize men and treat men as second-class citizens.
