Mapper since: September 14, 2008 | Contributor terms: Accepted about 3 years ago

Started mapping after using OSMAnd in the Dominican Republic. Have been mapping based on GPS, local knowledge and Bing sat images in Belgium and the countries I've travelled to.

Strong believer in OSM-as-a-swarm, and thus involved in community-building efforts. As a mapper mostly interested in making the map rough-and-ready for basic navigation - I mostly trace new roads. Been quite busy fixing up a lot of borders too. Did a one year road trip through South America. Using Osmand on the road, so adding waypoints, GPS tracks and some corrections when WiFi is available.
