SAUDI ARABIA 2005-2009 - Mapping and GIS Consultant.
Appointed GIS/cartographer consultant to a German GTZ contract for the Saudi Arabia, Ar Riyadh Development Authority (ADA), Strategic Plan for the Development of the Ar Riyadh Region (SPAR). Initial tasks involve the setting up of a dedicated SPAR Digital Mapping/GIS Unit at ADA to support all strategic planning activities utilising GIS and other mapping/graphics software. Several short-term expert missions to Riyadh have been completed for Phase I (2005) and are now in progress as part of Phase II (2006). To date approx. 120 maps in the form of an SPAR Atlas have been created as part of the planning process for Phase I. Phase III to follow in 2009.
SAUDI ARABIA 2002-2005 - Census Mapping and GIS Consultant.
Appointed GIS/cartographer consultant to a German GTZ contract for the Saudi Arabia, Ministry of Planning, Central Department of Statistics (CDS), Riyadh, to undertake a review of Statistical Mapping Enhancement for the 2004 National Census. Contract extended to implement the above review and install a digital mapping/GIS within the CDS Mapping Unit during December 2002 and January 2003. Further exchange visits took place during 2003-4 and are proposed for 2004-5 to include staff training in ArcGIS, Continuous Professional Development (CPD), verification of the Census GIS Enumeration Area database and the creation of map design and style templates.

es Salaam, Tanzania, 2002
Presentation of a ISPRS conference paper (Internet Mapping), tutorial and Advanced Cartographic Training Course (Internet Mapping & Map Design) for InfoBridge Consultants, Dar es Salaam.
An expedition was undertaken in 2001 to retrace the route of the RGS East Africa Expedition of 1878-80 from Zanzibar to Behobeho and locate the grave of cartographer/explorer Keith Johnston using GPS and GIS resources. In April 2002 the route from Behobeho to Lake Nyasa was successfully undertaken. A further unsuccessful attempt was undertaken in October 2002 to rediscover the gravestone of cartographer Keith Johnston at Behobeho. A further expedition took place during 2003 to Behobeho which generated new information and evidence on the location of the Behobeho villages. The search area has been narrowed down to approx. 1/2 square kilometre. A further expedition took place during October / November 2004.

I have further developed my digital data base and created map files in ArcInfo, ArcView, MapInfo, Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw formats.
TANZANIA 1985-93 - Cartographic Training Programmes
As part of a British Council funded Link Programme between the Universities of Glasgow and Dar es Salaam, I have undertaken 3 visits to Tanzania as a technical expert in cartography. This has involved a review of cartographic facilities, cartographic training of staff and data collection for map publication. This link also resulted in the production of several high quality map publications in collaberation with Tanzanian cartographers. These include a Visitors' Map of Dar es Salaam, map of Kilimanjaro Region, and campus maps of the University of Dar es Salaam, the Ardhi Institute and the Muhimbili Medical Centre. On a lighter note I even managed to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, the "Roof of Africa" in Tanzania.
INDIA 1991 - Census Cartography and GIS Consultant.
As part of a British Council funded programme in census cartography training within this Department, I was involved as a visiting consultant in digital cartography and traditional mapping at a Workshop for Census Cartography at the Office for the Registrar General, New Delhi, India.
