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
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.
