I started this website in 1997 as a maps website. Since then it has developed towards photography. Since 1997 webpage techniques have changed greatly so this now looks dated and simplistic. I need to re-create the website but it is a big job. When I checked, a few years ago, there were over 200 webpages, now there must be many more.

Originally it was maps of South East Asia, The Bahamas, Afghanistan, Iraq plus a load of traditional fiddle tunes but now most hits are on my photographic pages. A while back I was getting between 10,000 and 30,000 jpeg hits per day. (Now significantly reduced after Google changed their search criteria.) If you are not looking for anything in particular, I suggest that you try my photographs first.

The DMW, Digital Map of The World, is commercial data. The DMW is possibly the best VMap0/ONC/DCW 1:1,000,000 GIS dataset available, (depending on what you are trying to achieve). If your company wants to develop a GIS or maps like these check it out.

  • Oh Dear, recently I have upset two or three people by expressing my personal views on my webpages. All I can say is, "Tough". These, apart from the DMW website which is commercial, are my personal webpages. I prefer integrating my interests, my maps, my travel experiences and my views on what is happening in the countries. That my maps are some of the best maps on internet doesn't mean I shouldn't mix them with other interests of mine. If you don't share my views and as a result do not want to look at or buy my maps or tune-books, fair enough. I am retired, I live a very modest and very contented life, I don't need your business. I don't care if you do not like my anti-war views.
