I live near York (UK), though I do occasionally venture further afield. I mainly map footpaths and other out-of-town things. Also see related profile on Mastodon.

There are some bits and pieces (including two parts of an OSM-Carto-derived rendering style designed for out-of-town England and Wales) over at Github that look like this. There are some wiki pages behind here (mostly to do with tileserver setup).

I’m a member of the Data Working Group (that’s what the blue star above means), but if you’ve got any issues to raise with the DWG the group email address is the best one to use.

Other related accounts are SomeoneElse2. SomeoneElseSC and SomeoneElse_Revert, which is mainly used where people have requested that I help with reversions.

The “User id” of this account is “61942” and the text above this should include “Mapper since: 24 August, 2008”. I mention that because there have been a few attempts over the years to impersonate DWG members, including me, using names such as “SomeoneEIse” (with a capital “i” instead of a lower case “l”) and others with various UTF-8 versions of characters that look similar to, but are not, regular ascii characters.
