Just uploaded my first track 8 months ago

GPS traces are simply used as one of many pieces of source data to draw a map from. To edit the map in OSM, navigate to that area in the main map view and hit the "edit" tab at the top.

Mapping my hometown Visakhapatnam almost 2 years ago

India's going to be home to some great mapping (and mappers) before we know it.

Finished the tutorial almost 2 years ago

Very good keep it up...

Field mapping is so much fun! almost 2 years ago

Yes, Mapillary has transformed the way I map.

Last Week's Favourite Mapillary Photo almost 2 years ago

Yeah I notice that my "most viewed" mapillary images tend to be fairly... obscure.

If you have a smartphone, have you considered using mapillary to capture imagery at the same tine during your travels?

Looking good...

London mapathons: switching the emphasis to JOSM almost 2 years ago

Though I think it's important that we don't go too far with this - we will always have contributors dropping in & out of engagement and we must always make the "onboarding" stream a welcoming thing to replace those who will naturally drop out. We may feel quite volunteer-rich at the moment, but we might not always be in that position.

We don't want to find ourselves up a mountain with all the sherpas dead.

Not sure if that analogy makes any sense.

I also think there's an argument to be made about diversity in favour of retaining an iD contingent. There will always be a "demographic" of user for whom JOSM will always be too much (or just the install process, or maybe it won't install on their computer...) and casting off those users also casts off the friends that they might have told about missing maps, who again might be a broader demographic...

Also having most users start off with iD means they're all aware that they can edit OSM anytime from just a browser, not requiring any java-install-nonsense.

Conducting workshops for community building almost 2 years ago

It looks like a decent start, and imperfect mapping is better than no map. http://osm.org/go/yyz3HDM0- for anyone curious.

Beautiful.

Couldn't agree more. Suspicious behaviour detection is particularly something we could do with.

Field Mapping- Indiranagar, Bengaluru about 2 years ago

Really nice stuff. There's nothing more satisfying than a fieldpapers sheet so packed with information it's hard to fit it all in.

CordAid Resource Mapping Workshop - Coron, Palawan, Philippines about 2 years ago

Separate-way sidewalks make me feel a little nauseous.
