Overview

I'm Dan Rasmussen. My homepage is danrasmussen.org and I'm the creator of pdxwifimap.com, where I'm doing my best to educate others about OSM. I enjoy writing an OpenStreetMap diary post from time to time.

My aim with OpenStreetMap is to provide data and tools to people who want to live in a more environmentally sustainable way. I want to enable people to find the closest __X__ rather than go far out of the way. Unless they're bicycling, walking, taking buses, and not driving, in which case they might want to go far out of the way :) My OSM edits, and the other work I do, will reflect that.

Mapping Goals

  1. Learn to handle footpaths and cycle paths properly in Potlatch
  2. Learn to connect stairs to footpaths
  3. Find a mentor
  4. Publish the OSMtracker (Android) documents I've been working on
  5. Find a way to earn money from PDX Wifi Map so I can justify spending time to make it better
  6. Find any income source related to mapping and my other interests, really..
  7. Process my backlog of GPS tracks. Yikes!


Questions

  1. (Update, 2012-01-22: sounds like the answer is "yes") If I upload GPS traces as "public", will people besides me work from those, or map editors stick to their own traces?
