Cartography

As far back as I can remember, I have always drawn and created maps, whether of fantastical places from my imagination or of actual locations. I am now fully trained to a national standard to create highly accurate maps, either from scratch or using GIS data.

West of England Sustainable Drainage developers guide

Arup & West of England area councils

One of the many maps I produced using GIS layers and data for the West of England Sustainable Drainage developers guide; highlighting surface water, fluvial, drainage, and flood considerations for major housing developments in the south west.

Slave Trade trail around central Bristol

Bristol Museum and Art Gallery

As part of a range of educational materials on the Transatlantic Slave Trade, I produced this A2 map which takes you on a journey through Bristol from the 1700s to the present, exploring the buildings, places and people linked with the transatlantic slave trade.

5 Minute Walk Zone

Schools Map

An example of the cartography within the leaflets produced for lots of different schools in the South West area. Each 'watch' icon marks where a child marked off a start point on a school travel map.

Surface water and flood risk maps

Flood Risk Management team

Some of the many maps, built up either using GIS layers and data, or drawn freehand that I produced for a major report covering most of the South West area on Flood Risk Management for Central Government.



5 Minute Walk Zone

Introductory leaflet and example maps

At the start of the project to map five and ten minute journeys to school, some example maps and illustrations were produced for a leaflet so that teachers could show their classes how to create map data, which would then be suitable for converting into showing walking routes on future maps.

Avon Valley walks maps

A leaflet with walks and autumnal events in various open spaces and nature reserves in and around Avon Valley, Hanham, Conham Vale, and Brislington Brook.


Anti-social Behaviour Injunction Map

Avon & Somerset Police

An extremely precise map is needed to show areas that a person may have an injunction restricting or preventing them from entering, as these are drawn up following a court decision and are geographically legally binding if challenged.

20mph Phase maps

Bristol City Council

The 20mph citywide speed limit was rolled out in phases following consultation. Each phase required mapping out showing both speed limit changes and roads with the existing limit in place, and roads which needed treatment such as street furntiure or speed humps in order to accomodate the new changes.
