I am Michael Collinson. I map/have mapped since June 2005 in: Australia (NSW, QLD - Australia had just two roads in Sydney mapped then, I was the second mapper), Philippines, Los Angeles, UK (Wharfedale and surrounding areas), Sweden, Estonia and Lithuania. At the moment my main mapping area is Vallentuna/Norrtälje/Österåker kommuns north of Stockholm. I also map the Melbourne suburbs when work takes me there. I am also doing an experimental field-by-field map of Wharfedale in Yorkshire, UK where I grew up.
I was Secretary of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, Membership secretary, Chair of the License Working Group and was involved in organisation of some of the first State of the Map SOTM conferences. I now take a lower profile acting as an election observer for OSMF, OSM US, and HOT.
