I'm Andreas and I now live and work in Düsseldorf. I moved here from Ravensburg.

My current tool-set consists of JOSM on PC, iLOE on iPhone and the website on my android tablet.

While on my bike I use a GoPro camera(not anymore, my bike mounting got stolen) and a dashcam in my car to help with mapping.


Maps edited in

    • Bern - stuff relating to bus and trains
  • Austria
    • Wolfgangsee - all around the lake to make OSM a better experience for one of my former customers.
  • Japan
    • Tokyo - Ueno, Akihabara, Sumida (I originally added the Sky Tree as a node, but is has since been replaced by a real building)
    • Iwaki - Bing traces of (coastal) residential areas
    • some islands in the Tokyo Bay


In case you should encounter the "AEGMIS Graphics Library" (using Qt's QNetworkDiskCache) or the "AEGMIS TileCache" (custom PHP caching proxy): It is possible that the used caching methods aren't working as brilliant as I wanted them to be.

Although I don't work at that company anymore, but I will forward any complaints and help with solving the issues.

Anyway, I am already working on my own Tile rendering. For now, I am using Maperitive, but I intend to switch to a proper Mapnik server in the near future.
