Structural engineer and map geek in Smithfield, VA. Working on mapping areas I know in southeast and central Virginia as I have time (which isn't always often, unfortunately).
I'm also interested in generating custom map renderings for specialty items (rail, marine, trail, etc.). No experience on the topic, but something I'm learning on when I can.
I do have access to a lot of older Virginia USGS quads (paper) dating since around 1910 in some cases. I have access to a 36" scanner in my off time as well. I've been obtaining online or scanning historic quads of southeast Virginia for a couple of years. I've georeferenced some tiles with Map Warper and am actively looking for alternative tools - open to suggestions.
My recent project for the last year has been abandoned railroads in my area of the state - along with the usual Tiger data cleanup, etc, of course. I've also done some land use work in areas I know.
