Moin. My name is Hauke and I'm currently doing my master's degree of computer science in Hamburg, Germany. I'm contributing to OSM since April 2019 with focus on buildings, streets/ways, hydrants, cycle infrastructure, POIs and detailed mapping of all kinds of things.
Apart from OSM, I have a (currently inactive) blog about IT stuff and another blog about my hiking and trekking. I also contribute to Wikipedia, Wikidata and Wikimedia whenever I have something interesting to contribute. Mostly in combination with OSM data I'm mapping.
- OSM profile
- OSM traces
- GitHub profile
- GPG Key (Fingerprint: 4E20 23AC 217F C267 BE92 823E 1C24 2A90 80C2 A8F0)
- Simple Task Manager
I add many hydrants and try to organize by efforts.
Currently only one:
- tax_free_shopping: Some shops offer a direct tax-refund (e.g. at airports) or indirect refunds via third-party companies (e.g. "Global Blue"). The new key is duty_free=*.
I'm contributing (or have been contributing) to projekts in Ghana and Malawi:
Software I wrote:
- Simple Task Manager: A tasking manager (like the one from HOT or MapCraft) but simpler.
- GeoNotes: An android app to create georeferences notes.
- OSM OAuth 1A dummy server: FOR DEVELOPMENT USE ONLY! A server that emulates parts of the OSM API (OAuth and some user details API enpoints).
- OSM changeset crawler: A quite fast analyser of changesets e.g. by keywords in comments or by missing source-tags.
- GPX smoother: A tool to make recorded GPX tracks a bit smoother.
- image2tiles: Cuts an image (e.g. a scan of a hiking map) into XYZ-tiles, which can e.g. used in JOSM.
Other stuff I do
I'm doing workshops on topics like "how to contribute to OSM" at the university of Hamburg, Germany. For this purpose, I created slides introducing OSM, application, the data and how to contribute.
- Moin (/ˈmɔɪn/) is a short greeting from northern Germany and it just means "Hello, long time to see, how are you? What a great day, isn't it?". Saying moin moin is also common but already considered to be a whole conversation.
