I'm btrs, a mapper from Belgium. Although my mother tongue is Dutch/Nederlands, you may write in either English, Deutsch or Français, each of which I can understand well, but not write/speak as good.

Current Projects and Activities on OSM

At first I did some general local mapping around my hometown, but I now prefer to map the following things:

  • Bus lines around Antwerpen and Mechelen
  • Railway electrification in Europe (esp. France, Belgium, Germany), to complete the ITO-Map [1]
  • Railway speeds in Europe , to complete the ITO-Map [2]
  • Creating a tagging scheme to map train protection systems
