My OSM Experience

Helped coordinate some of the Isle of Wight mapping party, which was the first large OSM mapping event held.

Subsequently I completed the mapping of the Isle of Wight roads. I have since been tracing footpaths and bridleways from NPE / OS1:25k, and confirming these by survey as time permits.

Used the coastline import script to import about 50% of the UK coastline, and large sections of the coastline from Ethiopia round to Burma.

Keep a regular eye on the coastline error checker to fix any coastline problems which arise.

From Yahoo traced large parts of Darwin & Cairns in Australia, and was responsible for the majority of tracing of Baghdad

Other Usernames:

dmgroom_coastlines : used for coastline import

dmgroom_ct : current user name which I contribute under


Mostly now using a Navigon Transonic 6000T running Gosmore.
