I have over 40 years
experience as a surveyor with Ordnance Survey, resurveying and revising large scale maps and associated data at 1:1250, 1:2500
and 1:10,000 scales, including surveys for Her Majesty's Land Registry.
My experience included the interpretation of aerial photography for survey and mapping
I was later employed by Astrium, (formerly Infoterra Limited), part of European Aeronautic Defence
and Space, (EADS), and now part of Airbus, on the interpretation of satellite imagery and remote sensing data
for the mapping of world-wide areas of conflicts and natural disasters.
I retired from Ordnance Survey holding the post of Chief Surveyor
and Production Group Manager for Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Rutland.
I was seconded to the government
of the Republic of Indonesia as an adviser on Survey Standards and Validation, and as a trainer of Balinese government surveyors
in the revision of large scale mapping by ground graphic survey methods.
I was the lead member
of a team of Expert Witnesses trained by Bond Solon Training to represent Ordnance Survey in the civil courts in litigation
over map interpretation, boundaries and Rights of Way. This work involved investigations and research,
the writing of expert reports, and verbal evidence in the witness box.
also advised the police and HM Customs on behalf of Ordnance Survey in criminal cases.
I am fully conversant with the requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 (Experts and Assessors)
and the associated Practice Directions and Codes of Practice.

involvement in this field of work and I am consequently available to undertake Expert
