spiffy mapper

Mapper since:
July 31, 2008

I’ve been involved in the OSM community for many years, and went to State of the Map in Limerick 2008, Amsterdam 2009, Girona 2010, Tokyo 2012, NYC United Nations in 2015, and Aizu 2017; also SotM-US in SF 2013. I was one of the organising team for SotM 2013 in Birmingham. I briefly chaired the OSMF’s membership working group, and am a director of OpenStreetMap UK CIC, the UK local chapter of OSM.

I’m also a member of the British Cartographic Society.

In the early days of OSM I was the first to map several towns, around Europe, filling in roads in the vast blank spaces. Currently I’m mostly filling in tiny, overlooked named alleyways in central Newcastle and helping keep the map up to date.
