What else will you find on these pages?

Where will the tabs at the top of the page [and down the right hand side] take you?

There is a "topo" section on work experiences - not so much about me but a bit of social history, inevitably thorough my eyes, about life and work experiences in the Ordnance Survey over several decades and other places. The "obs" section offers some reflections and commentary on current, past and future issues and topics. The "landscapes" section provides a few illustrations on the world about us, mainly geoscience and geomorphology topics. There is also an "interests" section.

Here is an overview of those sections:
