Cartography & Infographics

I am trained as an architect and urban planner and have more than ten years experience in cartography and data visualization. My work has been featured in a number of books, publications and research projects.

My approach to production of maps and infographics focuses on both function and aesthetic, making them equally indispensable and mutually complementing. I aim at visual presentation that contains highly detailed and comprehensive information laid out in a clear and simple way. Elegant design is a necessary feature of the end product.

Please consult the Maps & Co. section on this blog, and/or the Cartography section on my website to see some examples of my work. Each project is developed upon a detailed discussion with the customer concerning the content, visual style and the audience.

My services include:
– Research and data collection (optional)
– Data analysis
– Base maps (optional)
– Composition analysis
– Layout design
– Rendering

  1. Just wanted to say that your work is great! Specially your unbiased,fact-based investigations into the Syrian war. Although sometimes the results of these investigations don’t match my liking, I must salute you for your brilliant sense of journalism. If only more Arab media relied on approaches like yours instead of pure sectarian propaganda.

    I will be following your elegant blog closely and enjoying your reports.

    On a final note, did you publish anything on security incidents in 2012-2014? I have a theory that these incidents tend to become more often before tourist seasons, in a systematic attempt to hurt Lebanon’s already weakened economy.

    • Thank you for your kind words.
      For the Security Incidents, 2012 & 2013 were not produced. 2014 is still pending funds. The hypothesis linking incidents with tourism is mainly propagated by Lebanese Politicians, and i highly doubt its pertinence.
      All the best.
