OpenStreetMap

Mapper since: December 12, 2009 | Contributor terms: Accepted about 4 years ago

In late 2009 after randomly stumbling upon OpenStreetMap, I discovered that my then hometown of Ribe was poorly covered and immediately started mapping it and the nearest surroundings. In early 2011 after Fugro released their 2005 aerial imagery I proceeded to map all of southwest Jutland. I'm still by a very large margin the main contributor in this area.

Between july and november 2011 I lived a few km west of Svendborg, where I also did some extensive quality control. I now live some distance east of Ribe.

I can often be found doing QA primarily in southern Jutland, but also other parts of Denmark.

My edit sessions often tend to grow quite massive, covering whole villages or even small towns in one go and I usually find it hard to write good descriptive comments for those massive changesets. If anyone's bothered by that I can only say: I find it hard to change and I'm sorry. I think I'm doing a good job though and to date I've received very few complaints.

You can see where I've been active at my OSM Heat Map and some statistics here.

My main gps is a Garmin Oregon 550t, which apart from tracking for OSM and general navigation is also used for geocaching.

I have no car and like to walk and ride my bicycle a lot :-D

In the summer of 2012 I became a member of the Danish Cyclists Union and joined their OSM mapping team.
