Living in Narre Warren South, previously Belgrave South (1989 to 2002) and Ferntree Gully (1984 - 1989)


iPhone 3Gs, iPad

I also have an old Laser (Navig8or) unit that may get retasked once the wife is comfortable with the navigation system in the new car.


Go running a lot in the local area, also do some computer servicing, so am pretty familiar with the streets in the area. Able to fill in a lot of the street names from knowledge, also from specific observation on runs and while performing house calls.

Apart from that, I will probably add map content by tracing imagery from both Yahoo and Nearmap, adding in parks, schools and drains/lakes. Started off using Potlatch 2, but after a couple of days have already moved to JOSM.

If I have made any omissions in providing "source=" data, I apologise.
