Jase Haysom, well known local map maker, will be our speaker at the upcoming FOBIF AGM on 9 September. Jase describes himself as ‘an incidental cartographer’:
I did not consciously decide that I would become a cartographer. It seems that, as a result of obliquely related actions, incremental step by incremental step I nudged myself in that direction. In the talk I’ll briefly look at how these incidental incremental steps occurred. I’ll then briefly discuss the mechanism I use to build a map and the limitations of the process. If time permits the talk will finish with some personal observations.
You can find out more about Jase’s map making including examples of maps at Cartography Community Mapping (CCM). He offers free mapping services to non-profit organisations such as Landcare groups. The maps have proved useful for resource management and as support material for reports and grant applications. Other non-profit organisations have used for maps in “how to get here brochures” or for training purposes.
The meeting will start at 7.30 in the Ray Bradfield Room, Castlemaine (next to Mostyn Street IGA supermarket). Information on how to nominate for the FOBIF Committee can be found here. All welcome and supper will be served.
