I was invited to SOTM 2009! - a big special thanks to the organization.

Involved with IBGE (Brazilian Geographic Office) Data import.

I'm from Brazil and have been interested in the project since late 2005.

I´m having fun mapping São Paulo, my hometown and near cities, using a Garmin Venture GPS and the Yahoo! imagery.

Mapping Activities

  • The biggest National/State highways that cross the Metropolitan Area with the Yahoo! Applet
    • Rodovia dos Bandeirantes
    • Rodovia Anhaguera
    • Rodovia Anchieta
    • Rodovia dos Imigrantes
    • Rodovia Fernão Dias
    • Rodovia Ayrton Senna
    • Rodovia Presidente Dutra
    • Rodovia Presidente Castelo Branco
    • Rodovia Raposo Tavares
    • Rodovia Régis Bittencourt
    • Rodoanel Mário Covas
  • Extending the above about 100km beyond the limits of Yahoo Imagery by GPS
  • Marginal Tiête e Marginal Pinheiros Expressways on both sides of the river
  • A bunch of the most important avenues of the city like 23 de Maio, Santo Amaro, Bandeirantes, Faria Lima, etc
  • Trace of the huge city lakes (almost done - man, this was a lot of nodes)
  • My (previous) neighborhood (Morumbi)
  • Jundiaí - my location nowadays

I also contributed with a few patches for the (now defunct) Java Applet and I'm very interested in research on fast geo database structures.
