WikiProject Belgium/Belgian Mapper of the Month

The Belgian Mapper of the Month is an interview with a OpenStreetMap contributor that lives in Belgium. During the interview we try to get to know when the mapper started, where she maps, which tools are used and what is being mapped. Furthermore we try to find out whether OpenStreetMap is used.

The idea was raised by Ben Abelshausen in October 2014. The goal is to make the Belgian website more attractive and to get to know one another.

The first interview appeared in November 2014. The interviews are published on the OpenStreetMap website in Dutch and French. The English translations appeared as a diary entry of escada

Mapper in the Spotlight

After the first year, the team thought that it might be a good idea to expand the idea across the border. This might be more interesting for other communities. This series is call "Mapper in the Spotlight"
