OpenStreetMap

Jan van Bekkum

Mapper since: January 18, 2013

Background

I have been traveling in Europe and North Africa as well as from the Netherlands via the Middle East South Africa and from there to South America during the last four years (with interruptions - actual travel time about 2.5 years). During these trips I increasingly have used OSM and I collected many tracks and POI's.

Current actions

A am back in the Netherlands for a longer period and I use that time to update OSM with the information I collected, in particular camping locations and roads.
