I support OSM by being a
member of the
OpenStreetMap Foundation
Are you?


I'm a Helsinki based mapper (OSM profile) who's mapping mainly in my home country Finland, where my special areas of interest are the Helsinki Region & Kuhmo municipality. I also try to participate in Humanitarian OpenStreetMap mapping events whenever possible.

Background

I joined the OSM community in July 2014 to see what OSM was all about. Didn't submit my first contribution until January 2016 inspired by the OSM Finland 2016 Meeting. OSM Foundation member since 2018.

Projects

Here's a list of OSM-projects (validation tools & data edits) I've been working on.

Helsinki

Kainuu

Validation tools - Kuhmo

Digitransit

Here's a shortlist of things to check out in order to ensure that the OSM data in the Kainuu area is OK to be used with digitransit. This list is based on the documentation on the OSM wiki digitransit validation page and the use cases are explained in detail here.

Project ideas

  • Kuhmo City Center updates
    • Update areas (eg. city block by city block) based on recent Mapillary imagery & NLS data check & tag...
      • sidewalk/cycleway
      • landuse eg. (grass areas/commercial)
      • building types (entrances?)
      • addresses
      • special details (POIs,stairs,tunnels,trees etc.)
      • create mapnotes for unclear features to be checked later
  • Map old schools and give them the appropriate tagging (name, disused school etc.). A list of schools can be found here.
  • Move earlier added names from buildings to farmyards landuse=farmyard. Check situation here.
  • Check local hunting association contacts & informations to locate their club_home = amenity=community_centre.
  • Manually check with city/municipality websites that all the sports centres leisure=sports_centre can be found in OSM + avoid overlapping centres by removing unessecary sports_centres within a sports_centre that can be classified as leisure=fitness_centre or building=sports_hall
  • Check with city/municipality (and other?) websites that all the chalets tourism=chalet can be found in OSM
  • Check recycling locations (eg. https://www.ekokymppi.fi/)
  • Check with city/municipality websites that all the schools amenity=school can be found in OSM
  • Check with city/municipality websites(?) that all the hospitals amenity=hospital can be found in OSM
  • remove source="Kosmosnimki.ru" from objects I've edited based on MML/NLS
  • Check for missing names (eg. objects that have name:sv but no name or name:fi or vice versa)
  • Ensure that there are no gaps between landuse areas ( eg. with this service)

Tools

Editing both with JOSM and ID. For mobile mapping I'm mainly using maps.me. I have also been using Mapillary to collect street view images to support OSM edits.

Work

I work as a GIS specialist at Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) where my work account is HSL_HRT). See our organisation wiki for further information on how and why we work with OSM.
