    Default Good ol' formal introductions.

    Hey guys,

    I work in the Dalhousie Map Collection/GIS Centre (thus work with both paper and digital maps) and have a background in graphic design and photography. I am currently studying Geography and GIS.

    "We" at the Collection stumbled upon the Guild a few days ago (see my register date... haha) and fell in love with it. We are lucky enough to have on staff a classically trained cartographer who teaches a university level cartography course. The tutorials, as a resource, are incredible, and may make it into the curriculum (with due credit). Many of the finished maps are of the highest quality and sparked quite a discussion here.

    I believe Fictional/Fantasy maps are a wonderful thing, and I look forward to becoming part of the community.

    -Thatch

    Welcome to you and your mates.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
    -J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

    Cool - are any of Dalhousie's collection available online? I poked around the Map Collection and GIS section of the website, but I didn't see anything obvious. Welcome to the Guild!
