Mapper since: January 09, 2008

I’m Rory McCann. I’m a mapper and programmer originally for Ireland, but now based in Germany. I work at Geofabrik. (pronouns: english: they, deutsch: er)

I’m taking part in the Irish Historic Mapping Project, and created a site to show a map of the irish townlands we’ve added

Mastodon/Fediverse account: @rory@en.osm.town

In case your wondering, my username (᚛ᚏᚒᚐᚔᚏᚔᚋ᚜ 🏳️‍🌈) is ”ruairim” (“rorym” in Irish) in Ogham, an Early Medieval alphabet used primarily to write the early Irish language, and then a rainbow flag. It’s interesting to see what OSM software doesn’t follow open standards, and cannot handle unicode correctly. 😈 I currently cannot add my OSM username to the OSM wiki (but there I am Rorym), nor log into the OSM forum, or OSM help site
