Started my first edit within my local area 11 months ago

Welcome to OSM! Let us know if we can help!

Trying to finish up the Chugach mountain area about 1 year ago

Looks phenomenal! I’ve done some work mapping Mount Rainier National Park, so I know the pain of assigning natural types in those hybrid areas.

Using Washington State DNR LiDAR imagery in the iD editor over 1 year ago

Very cool! I didn’t know this was available to help map some of the more difficult areas to map in WA. Thanks for the link and information on the background layer!

The state of Anchorage, Alaska on OSM almost 2 years ago

Hi Hans, you’ve made incredible progress with Anchorage! It’s always great to check in and see all the new features you are adding. Amazing job; I think you might be approaching Newton’s achievements!

Mapping Ballot Drop Box Location over 2 years ago

Added on in the tiny town of Wishram in the Gorge recently, but this reminds me I should add more tags to it.

My first (and maybe last) blog entry over 2 years ago

As an editor based on the US, I’m alway looking forward to hearing more from other US-based editors, especially given how pervasive Google Maps is in the US.

New to Open Street Map over 2 years ago

Yep, if it’s a business with a physical location, then sure. The number of businesses in the area really depends on how many local mappers the area has.

My edits in Bergen County, part 14 almost 3 years ago

Nice job, it’s awesome to see the progress you’ve been making!

Fixing Ellis Island's borders in the face of incorrect government data almost 3 years ago

This is really an interesting read. Great work with a serious level of attention to detail.

Extracting building height from drone imagery over 3 years ago

Wow, that is really impressive. Some seriously professional work there!

Updates to DigitalGlobe imagery layers over 3 years ago

Thank you for all your contributions! DigitalGlobe access has been an incredible asset to the OSM community.

The Maps Team at Facebook is excited to announce RapiD Editor Partner Testing almost 4 years ago

What a great tool! Hope this is released for all, as this might even help mapping in the US (West Virginia is a great example).

Departing Turkmenistan in June almost 4 years ago

Thank you for everything you’ve done to improve the map in one of the least mapped countries in OSM. I’ll miss the interesting diaries about your adventures around Turkmenistan, especially as someone who travels regularly to less developed countries for work. You and Ann are superstar OSM contributors.

Best of luck on your next assignment or wherever your work takes you.

My First Edit! almost 4 years ago

Welcome to OSM!

Saint Lucia forest almost 4 years ago

Great work! The before and after comparison is really cool. Really obvious how much work went into it.

Spotting solar panels in London about 4 years ago

I know Google has machine learning pulling locations of solar panels from satellite imagery for their Project Sunroof tool. Seems accurate, if outdated at this point.

Definitely good to see some work going on to make renewables in all forms.

My edits in Bergen County, part 10 about 4 years ago

Awesome, looks great!

Three Days on the Road = About 30K Images about 4 years ago

I always appreciate your diary entries. Really cool to see how perhaps the most accurate and up to date map of Turkmenistan is being developed.

My edits in Bergen County, part 8 about 4 years ago

Looks phenomenal, really fantastic job!

My edits in Bergen County, part 5 over 4 years ago

Nice work! Really coming together over there. Hopefully we’ll see some businesses get added in downtown Hackensack soon, with all the new buildings added now.
