About     Maps     Photos     Words


Hello there! and welcome to my website :) I am a cartographer and urban data scientist based in Toronto.

I currently work as Lead, Maps & Data Visualization at the School of Cities. Previous to this, I was working towards a PhD in Geography (completed in 05/2022).

At the moment, this site acts as a visual library for a few of my mapping and photography projects.

Feel free to also check out my GitHub profile, which is a hodgepodge of geographic data analysis/science/cleaning projects (mostly using Python or PostGIS) or developing smaller scale web-based interactive maps and data viz projects (recently with Svelte and some combination of D3, MapLibre, and/or Leaflet).

Elsewhere, I'm on Mastodon and LinkedIn. I also occasionally contribute to OpenStreetMap.

Feel free to contact me at jeff.allen@utoronto.ca if you have any comments or questions about anything you find here, or if you just want to say hi!
