Hello all! By day, mechanical engineer, by night OSM mapper. I’m an avid mapper to OSM, but I really like the premise of adding open-source information to benefit ends and goals beyond me, but especially those that enhance pedestrian and non-car mobility and quality of life. As one user said, a mapper of OSM is like one tendril of a “benevolent fungus, but for maps.”

I have organized several very small scale mapathon/walking mapathons (during the Covid-19 pandemic!) so you can ask questions about that if you like. My interests are in water management and alternative forms of water supply, for example as in rainwater harvesting.

As a resident of Athens, GA, I am interested in improving the quality and quantity of data on OSM in my area. I completed an import of address data from the ACC Open Data portal page for Athens-Clarke County.

Response to Large Edit

https://osmcha.org

Hi [enter username], thank you for contributing to OpenStreetMap; we are really happy to see you're improving the map! I am reaching out to you to also let you know that you submitted a changeset that covers a very large area. [Specify the area]. Please try to upload your changes only in a small area. nd if you want to modify 2 different regions, publish them separately. It makes it easier for inhabitants to check your modifications.

Thank you!

Hello,

Thanks for your contributions! Please, try to upload your changes only in a small area. And if you want to modify 2 different regions, publish them separately. It makes it easier for inhabitants to check your modifications.

Thank you :)

Response to New Mapper

Hello! I noticed you made a few changes around [insert area]! Thanks for the contributions! I’m an active mapper in the Athens area, but I like to reach out to fellow mappers close by in Georgia to let them know that other people are doing this too. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask me, and in addition if you are interested there is a slack Georgia OSM group that you are welcome to join. #local-georgia I’m not 100% sure how to add a member, but let me know if that link works. Thanks and happy mapping!

Hello [insert username]! Thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap! I’m an active mapper in the Georgia area, but I like to reach out to fellow mappers in the U.S. to let them know that there is large and growing community of people who make OpenStreetMap come to life. The OpenStreetMap wiki (wiki.openstreetmap.org) has a ton of great information on how and what you can map. Thanks and happy mapping!
