Len Guelke Biography

Len Guelke has a Ph. D. in geography from the University of Toronto. His early career involved cartographic positions in Edinburgh, Scotland and Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where he worked on school and regional atlases. As a university educator at the University of Waterloo he taught full-time for 30 years. During his tenure there he pursued his cartographic interests by playing an active role in the Canadian Cartographic Association, writing and editing material on cartographic topics and publishing specialty maps.

The city-centered map he is probably most famous for is an azimuthal world map centered on Toronto, which became a popular poster. In 1997 The Canadian Cartographic Association honored Len with its “Award of Distinction”. As a retiree he has extended his earlier interest in cartography and map projections employing GIS computer skills to produce a wide variety of custom maps. He has created many maps on equidistant azimuthal projections prepared for a variety of individuals and groups, including a Mecca-centered world map for the Canadian Islamic Council. In 2007 he played a major role in the equal area map of the USA published by ODT.
