In late February, I’ll be starting a new job with Apple as a cartographer in their Maps division. I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to directly shape the look and feel of an application that is used by millions of people around the world for directions, exploration, and other geographic pursuits. My goal is to ensure that the data behind that application is as accurate as possible. It will be the first time I’ll be using my geography and cartography skills in a way that’s completely digital (that is, without any print-related components). The position is at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, CA, which means I’ll be moving from Washington, DC, my home for the last 10 years. My wife and I have made many friends there, and we will miss the great sense of community and excitement, but hope to find something similar in the San Francisco Bay Area.
