Lives in Brussels. Loves OSM and wishes to be a useful contributor. Will gladly participate to meetings of the Belgian mappers community whenever possible.

My typical contributions on the map (as of June 2018):

  • measuring Brussels metro stations to include platforms, stop positions, stairs, footways, elevators and create a geographically-accurate and routable structure. Lines 1, 2 and 5 are fully operational, line 6 is still missing north of Pannenhuis station (surveying is being done), and 4 premetro stations are still missing and will be surveyed soon.

  • survey of all STIB/MIVB tram and bus stops to relocate them where they really are, and migration of all routes to PTv2 standard. Current status: all routes are on the map (except route 15 which will disappear on Sep. 1), 2,065 stops out of 2,319 are correctly located, and all the other stops are now at least roughly correct.

  • adding shops in Brussels city centre and occasionally elsewhere in the Brussels-Capital Region.

  • hunting for tagging mistakes, dealing with notes, improving shape of streets where reliable high-quality aerial imagery is available.

  • mapping footways and cycleways in areas I am familiar with.

Everyone makes mistakes now and then; I take great care in respecting standards and not breaking things but should I make something wrong, please inform me.
