profilepic-transparentMy name is Andrew Douglas-Clifford, and I am a Masters in Geographic Information Science (MGIS) student at the University of Canterbury. I am currently undertaking my research thesis into crowdsourced smartphone passenger feedback systems for public transport, which I expect to complete by the end of March 2017. Before this, I studied a Bachelor of Science in Geography at the University of Canterbury. I am passionate about maps, cartography and GIS, and enjoy creating maps as a hobby (sometimes as procrastination!).

I share my works on my website's blog, Facebook page and Twitter, and also sell my designs on my own self built web store The Map Kiwi.

Some of my more well known work includes the New Zealand State Highway Metro Maps, which received wide national attention in May 2016. These won the New Zealand Cartographic Society's People's Choice Map Award, which was held at the biannual GeoCart Cartography conference located in Wellington at the end of August 2016. I am also a student representative to the New Zealand Cartographic Society committee, and a recipient of the New Zealand ESRI User Group Postgraduate Scholarship 2016.
