I have always been fascinated by maps and have fond memories of a primary school atlas that showed how Australia was gradually explored and the territories developed. I am a Senior University Teacher at the University of Glasgow where I have taught cartography for over 20 years and I still enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for maps and map design with students, on the only programme in the UK to retain a focus on cartography. Increasingly my research is on maps for use by the public, such as tourist and transport maps, and their usability. A past President of the British Cartographic Society, involvement in the ICA has allowed me to further develop international co-operation and give more back to the subject that has dominated my life.
