Mapper since: February 02, 2016

Hi, I have just arrived with OSM in 2017 (not sure why it took so long). Jumping in to JOSM and then seeing my edits coming up a few minutes later was very heartening and I will try to keep it up. Also tired of maintaining geodata on my own hard drives and seeing the sense of working together.
I mostly engage with biodiversity and human community data in South Africa. Coming from a MapInfo learning environment I have migrated to QGIS and am exploring cloud based environments such as Carto, MapBox and now JOSM.
