Mapper since:
January 09, 2008

I’m Amanda McCann. I’m a mapper and programmer originally for Ireland, but now based in Germany. I work at Geofabrik. (pronouns: english: she or they, deutsch: „sie“)

I’ve been on the OpenStreetMap Foundation Board of Directors since Dec 2019. re-elected in Dec. 2021. I’m currently the OSMF Secretary. I write up what I do in OSM on my OSM Diary.

I’m on the Communication WG, and I have lots of OSM stickers which we’ll send you for free. I started & admin the En.OSM.Town Mastodon/Fediverse server for the OSM community (See what’s being posted there, who’s active, sign up here).

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

Me on other websites:

In case your wondering, my username is 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 log into the OSM forum, or OSM help site

This is what the letters mean: ᚛(A(m)(a)(n)(d)(a)

I changed my name in mid-2021, so you may have known me by an old name. 😉
