Hi, I'm Nikolaj  :-)

I live in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, Denmark.

You can contact me at: im@niksbiks.dk - but you have to include the word osteklokke in the text, otherwise my spam filter will eat it...

I am currently mapping the North Copenhagen area on a bicycle. I am trying to systematically map areas so all streets get mapped. Initially I am mainly creating ways, incl names, in JOSM and upload that and the corresponding GPX traces.

Projects

Currently working on mapping:

  • Dyrehaven
  • Jærgersborg
  • Lolland (mostly around Maribo)
  • Driving around randomly to map the bigger roads on Sjælland

In addition to this, I fix the minor inaccuracies I find in Nørrebro.

Lolland is getting there... After making lots of detours... Lolland.png

Future

When I reach the limit going North (about 15 km each way to the mapping area) I will probably start swinging Westward.

  • Emdrup, Vangede, Søborg, Buddinge
  • Møn?

Also, I will try to see if I can get any mapping done on business trips and holidays. Though I fear it will be too slow to do on foot.

  • Don't worry about doing stuff on foot. Most of the Inner city of Copenhagen and all of Vesterbrogade+ sideroads to Istedgade was done on foot. Benefits are threefold : 1) You get excercise. 2) You get to see the architecture and the "hidden" pearls of a town. 3) You get to meet a lot of different interesting people.

Well, the problem is time. It is very limited how long you can walk in the odd hour (when you also have to get back), but I will try it out... Nikolaj 22:54, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Done

Note that I don't claim credit for all this work, this is just the area I spend most of my time.
