Mapper since: January 31, 2011 | Contributor terms: Accepted almost 6 years ago
I live between two places: San Ramon, California and Ahualoa, Island of Hawaii, so both of those are well modeled in OSM. I love JOSM and recently discovered the power of its scripting plugin. I do all hand-modeling, no imports. I admire users like katpatuka who make massive manual contributions to remote parts of the world. Usually, I enjoy finding under-mapped parts of the world to contribute to (Sudan, Somalia, Mongolia...)
Some notable things I've worked on:
- Created the town of Gereida, Sudan which was a blank spot on the map (see Lost city in Darfur)
- Fixed/added missing provinces of Iran, including Hormozgan and Sistan and Baluchestan
- Won the first Telenav 30-day challenge mostly by doing massive Tiger cleaning in North and South Carolina, including the entire city of Lumberton
- Assembled the relation for the Klamath River, only to discover the Nominatim doesn't yet find river relations (there's an issue in trac)
