Abstract:The author, who was John Keates' first full-time graduate student, reflects on his early years in Glasgow University learning about cartography. His mentor not only provided training and education, but inspired him to investigate, through stimulation of curiosity and experience of the inevitable associated frustrations, some of the most exciting practical and artistic techniques of the subject. Closely integrated (and essential to effective design) were the associated challenges to seek fundamental understanding of cartography, and this has process has continued.
