Mapper since:
November 09, 2012

Originally from Melbourne, Australia; I haved lived in Vientiane, Laos for a few years. I am now living back in Victoria.

My edits are generally based on survey, combined with my GPS tracks, any notes I make and available background/overlay sources.

Some edits are not based on survey, such as for MapRoulette tasks, in which case the sources used should be detailed in my changeset.

I have a lot of edits, but they are generally small. I am a casual, mid-level editor. Being a casual editor, I don’t know everything… If I’ve done something “wrong” just let me know.

I use Vespucci, StreetComplete and Every Door to make simple edits as well as to make GPS tracks and notes on the move, or iD on desktop for more advanced edits that can’t be undertaken on a phone easily.

Historically I sourced most of my edits though photos I took on my phone with GPS tags. This is no longer used, but the archive can be seen here. In some instances these days I will now upload an image and use the image tag.

My alias on the OpenStreetMap wiki is also Beager.

I also have a Wikipedia account, which I’ve had since 2008 and I use to add the odd bit of information.
