About me

There could be a few reasons you're looking at this

Local Mapping

I'm based in New Westminster, BC, within Greater Vancouver. I regularly attend GIS events and give talks, and I'm also interested in setting up a regular local mapping meetup.

I also regularly travel between Vancouver and Seattle.

Services run

I run a few services for local mappers, including hosting some imagery.

Data Working Group

I'm a member of the Data Working Group. If you have an issue for the Data Working Group, please email the entire group

Development

I'm an active developer, working on various OpenStreetMap software

  • ogr2osm, a program to convert data to .osm format and tags

  • cgimap

  • openstreetmap-carto

  • osm2pgsql (benchmarking mainly)

Work

I have just started work at MapQuest.

I've been a consultant on geospatial databases and OpenStreetMap-related issues.

Other accounts

My other accounts are pnorman_imports, pnorman_mechanical and pnorman redaction revert. Doing Data Working Group activities gives me a need to separate out the work more so than most mappers.
