About Me

  • degree in Cartography and Geomatics
    (my thesis dealt with a problem in cartographic model generalisation of OSM data)
  • experience in nautical chart production
  • trained in Computer Science
  • contributed to OSM primarily in Germany and Norway

I firmly believe that the community's local knowledge is OpenStreetMap's greatest asset. It's where neither state-sponsored actors nor other web mapping projects such as Google can compete. Accordingly, I tend to only map things I personally verified on the ground and am opposed to automated edits and imports (with some exceptions).

Public domain
All my contributions to OpenStreetMap are released into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
In case this is not legally possible, I grant anyone the right to use my contributions for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.

I continue to use several distinct OSM mapping accounts for reasons that once were practical, but no longer are now. Some of these accounts are:

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


Very occasionally, I read [NUUG kart] and other OSM mailing lists. Please don't take mailing list discussions off-list without clearly and prominently stating your reason to do so! Without a reason, I will assume you made a mistake in operating your email client and might forward your message to the list.

Feel free to use my Wiki talk page, the messaging system, or any other suitable means to get in touch.
