Since then, he has accumulated an extensive knowledge mapping, transportation & design technologies, particularly in the public transit, government and real estate development sectors. He is adept in the use of software, tools and techniques used in graphic design, GIS, transportation modelling, online communication, software development, and programming. Ian effectively manages staff, project teams, suppliers and external resources to fulfill service to clients and stakeholders. He also has years of experience working on municipal committees, and liaising with many different departments and agencies. Ian is a maverick, able to merge conflicting ideas to reach common goals, focus on what the customer needs and how these goals are effectively and efficiently attained with the limitations of available time, resources and budget.|
Ian's academic credentials and training include: Urban & Regional Planning, Local Economic Development (Masters Degree), and he is currently working on completing a Civil Engineering Masters Degree at the University of Waterloo.
In 2010, the map publishing interests of Dun-Map Inc. were merged with another long-established mapping firm, Mapmobility Corp, of Toronto. The two companies had been working together for several years, and the merger provides many benefits to Dun-Map's clients through greater production capacity and efficiencies. Ian is no longer in the mapping business and has since moved to the Yukon.
