Mapper since: January 22, 2018
Hi, nice to see you! I am a volunteer contributor. I use OSM maps on my hand-held GPS usually when I travel, and by contributing here I found my way to pay back. I also map on HOTOSM, and being both a trained paramedic and logistics expert I know of the importance of reaching out to your destination quickly. Therefore I support emergency response and high priority projects. I also map independently in less visited areas where current OSM maps are still a patchwork only. I have a good sense for the world seen from above, and try to include cultural knowledge from my travels, and the view from a ground perspective. So I spend a lot of effort for details and interpretation of the imagery. My free time spent here can’t go into other social projects, so I am glad about sensible feedback, and will happily give so likewise especially to novice mappers. This is volunteering, and only our teamwork makes other peoples’ dream work! Thanks.
