OSM Logo This user submits data to OpenStreetMap under the name peSHIr.

After finding out about OSM and seeing the residential area I now live in was basically still one single road in a field I started to get to know Potlatch to remedy this. I still have only done OSM mapping using Potlatch.

I am very interested in (electronic) mapping, GPS application, computer science and the areas where this all mixes.
