Oh..come to think of it, it probably would be topography, (Of course, "Jacuzzi Rules" here, so i may be so off base) Anyway, he was a pilot shooting photos so it could be mapped, if you get my drift.

(Anyway, cool job, if you ask me!)

Ah! Ok. That makes sense. I know a couple of Ariel cartographers (its not technically accurate, but is as good a term a any), and yes, they are pretty crazy in general.

Yeah, I remember him, when I joined TP in August 2006 he was around, I remember we had some questions/answers in a thread or PM (don't remember) and afterwards he was gone. Guess he didn't like me and maybe it's my fault
