CodeMacabre is Myles Lewando (pronounced 'le-van-doe'), a freelance GIS specialist and web developer, and a learning technologist at the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University. Aside from cartography, I have a strong interest in experimental interaction systems and digital learning, and I am an open-source and open data advocate.

I am always happy to discuss anything space, maps, space maps… or insects.
