GPS and the likes

Currently I use a Dell Inspiron mini 9 netbook, software tangoGPS and a Bluetooth GPS receiver to get GPS logs.

I use JOSM for the editing part in OSM.

Before committing the editing, I check the rendering using the version of the Osmarender I have installed at home.

And OSM ?

Currently, besides contributing map data, I installed a client for tiles@home, contributing maps rendering, running the client whenever I have PC spare time (e.g. not using it to compile or other similar compute intensive tasks).

What I already did for open source

I am a code contributor to, this interview is what best describes it (and with it, my English mistypings as well...).

As of today, it's already more than a year and a half old, but things didn't change that much from then.

I use the same user name in

Where do I live?

My real name is Giuseppe Castagno and I live in Vigone (OSM link), a small village south-west of Turin (OSM link), Italy.

I'm mapping the village itself and the surrounding area, especially bicycle trails.

I work as a free lance developer and hardware designer; having customers around, I will map other areas whenever I drive into unmapped ones.
