About MapGeek

Welcome to MapGeek.tech!

Haere Mai!

(That’s welcome in Te Reo Māori – one of the three official languages of New Zealand/Aotearoa).

MapGeek.tech is for people who love maps, especially those interested in geospatial tech, and also for all geeks – in tech and other fields. There’s content from both hemispheres of the Earth, especially from Canada and New Zealand. It’s a place you can find posts and information about:

  • Excerpts and links to my articles published on GoGeomatics (and hopefully other sites!)
  • Cool maps and stories about them
  • Posts about my experience changing careers into tech after being self-employed in special education for almost two decades
  • General geeky articles
  • Knitting and fibre arts photos, articles, and maybe an ArcGIS Story Maps (very geeky – see the quote below)
  • On that note – likely lots of random cool quotes
  • Cat photos
    • I’m a pet mom of three rescue cats – including one who likes to “help” me #wfh on school by taking up half my desk.
  • Tutorials on various IT topics – as a way to study and learn while helping others
  • Content about Canada and New Zealand.

“Knitting is, at its fundamentals, a binary code featuring top-down design, standardized submodules, and recursive logic that relies on ratios, mathematical principles, and an intuitive grasp of three-dimensional geometry.”
