My Name is Falko Thomale. I live in Chemnitz (50.835°N, 12.922°E) see on OSM map, Germany.
I am focusing on mapping of course in Chemnitz and also near Mittweida especially some small villages.
Equipment for OSM
In April 2009, I bought a Transystem i-Blue 747. Here are some points for interested people:
- With Linux you can easily use the software BT747 to download all the logs from the device over USB.
- With the switch on the side you can adjust if the i-Blue should log or not (use as gps-mouse). Unfortunately did the i-Blue log further even after you have pulled the switch back from logging. The only way to stop logging is, to turn it off by the software.
- The ring-storage-mode was not so useful for me (sometimes there were no logs - or even it stopped logging). So i use now the mode stop-when-storage-full. And after every tour am i deleting the storage.
In April 2010, I bought a Nokia N900.
Dell Vostro 1310 with Ubuntu.
- I have written a plugin for Josm to edit the opening_hours tags with a graphical Dialog like a curriculum see JOSM/Plugins/OpeningHoursEditor.
amenity=post_box in Germany
At the moment I'm correcting misspellings in the tags of German postboxes. A list with all the post_box-tags in Germany is available under .
