First diary entry

What are these diaries for I wonder?

Today was my first proper contribution to OSM. I made over 100 edits using the StreetComplete Android app plus a couple of manual edits using the website. For a while at least, this is going to be a fun excuse to get some exercise.

My plan, I think, is to…

  • Learn more about the philosophy behind OSM (I’m interested in the cycle, transport and humanitarian maps)
  • Get a bit more familiar with the tools and mapping
  • Maybe try to come up with some specific ways to contribute that interest me. I’d like to add more of the BTN BikeShare hubs for starters.

My goal outside OSM is to learn QGIS and more generally how to make maps, for Wikipedia but also for my own personal interest.

We’ll see.
