Every time you pull out a map when you look for direction you never stop to think how someone put all these places on said map but the person who did just saved you from getting lost. You have cartographers to thank for all the maps and GPS systems you use. You may wonder where do these people work, do they sail around the world?, do they use satellite imaging well the answer some these guys sit at home all day on their computer others in government departments doing the same on their computers. The places these people work can vary for no reason at all as long as they have the skills require. Now you probably started wondering “What skills does one need become a cartographer, well being one isn’t a walk in the park if you aren’t a computer nerd or computer expert. You need to be very good with computers and if filing isn’t you’re cup of tea forget about being a cartographer. The same goes for if you’re not polite because there are a lot of big shots out there who will call you up and say “Hey man what’s up oh yeah you got x place wrong on y part of the map.” You will have to politely solve the issue if you have an interest in maps and are a very polite computer expert maybe you should look into this job.
