HarperCollins Publishers

Cartographer

During my time at HarperCollins (John Bartholomew & Son) I was trained in traditional mapping techniques and then I was involved in the transition to Geographical Information System.
One of my first tasks after the changeover to digital mapping was the creation and maintenance of large databases for mapping purposes.
I was also involved in the production of final files for print using conventional and digital methods.
When I left in 1996 I was a team leader responsible for six members of staff.
