Mapper since:
September 18, 2020

Hey there, I’m Sahil aka sahilister on the internet. I started mapping due to lack of roads in my native village here in Himachal Pradesh, India. My initial goal was to map all the roads and places near my native place but it has since grown on to an obsession to add/edit/delete everything on OpenStreetMap.

Presently, I’m adding data (and Wikidata IDs) to existing institutions (school, colleges), methodology being browsing institutes website and adding data to OSM.

When I’m bored with this data entry, you may find me:

  • either randomly selecting a highway and moving along it to find unmapped habitations to spend hours mapping those random roads
  • add/correct nodes by navigating through my own city
  • adding public transport
  • foot and cycle ways
  • simply resolving notes.
  • upgrading nodes.
  • adding foot ways
  • adding public surveillance camera
