About Me

Julie Witmer photo
I'm Julie Witmer, a cartographer in Kitchener, Ontario. I produce custom maps that encourage people to explore.

I create maps as a means to learn about our communities. If we get to know our communities better, we create connections and get involved. Active communities are healthy and happy communities!

I work with local associations, publishers, small business owners, non-profit organizations, and municipalities. Clients work with me because I ask the right questions, listen, and make the process easy for them. Our collaboration creates beautiful and useful maps that tell a story.

Since 2013 I've worked with clients to create:

  • area and business locator maps
  • city and region overview maps
  • business service area maps
  • city tourist maps
  • neighbourhood and business improvement area maps
  • cycling and active transportation maps
  • transportation hub maps
  • visitor guide maps
  • wine region maps for website and mobile apps
  • maps for travel books
  • maps for magazines and scientific manuscripts
  • lake maps
and more.

If you want someone to help you get the best map for your needs, you can talk to me. I love travelling - overseas and within Canada. And I love exploring my city, on foot or by bike. I have used many different kinds of maps and together we can work out what needs to be on your map and what is not necessary.
