Backpacker and hiker from San Francisco.

I do other stuff as well, but those are the activities that focus my attention on maps, so most of the edits I expect to contribute to OSM will be off-road. (Off piste?)

My diary over on OSM.

Some notes and links that I might otherwise forget:

Wikipedia entry on "Mountain Pass" — http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_pass includes these synonyms: ...also gap, notch, col, saddle, hause, bwlch (Welsh), brennig or bealach (Gaelic)

Use of "natural=" — http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/natural#values

  • 148 uses of "col"
  • 23 uses of "mountain_pass"
  • 16 uses of "pass"
  • 12 uses of "saddle"

Unfortunately, I don't know yet how to actually find, on the map, those features by searching.
