Just another contributor.

I use XMPP, same username.

Updating the basemap/reference map. Use Garmin Montana. Plan on contributing to the bicycle route map as well. I usually only map areas that I have actual GPX data, have been to, or have some local knowledge, because I see constantly that imagery never seems to match, even on the more recent stuff.

I also add a lot of POI to the map, and usually add them as points, instead of areas ( spent a lot of time adding POI as areas in chicago and it got wiped out when they added the buildings, that was lesson learned).

Still learning as much GIS as I can. Hope to be involved with planning or some GIS in the future.
