About me

Living and working in Falköping, Sweden. Joined this wiki in the end of October 2006 and mapping mainly around here in Skaraborg. When I'm out collecting GPS tracks I use a Nokia LD-3W bluetooth GPS together with my Nokia E7 and the brilliant TrekBuddy software.

Have a look at the OSM purity self-test and figure out how much of an OpenStreetMapper you are. I got a score of 1.21 which means I'm not addicted, yet. The limit is at 2.0.
