Welcome fellow mappers

My name is Kai, born ca. 1982 in Bremen, Germany ;-)

I started mapping in OSM to edit features for my other hobby Genealogy - and used the maps long before while Geocaching.

Shout outs to the German Telegram Group where many nice people have answered a lot of my newbie questions :-)

If you're dissatisfied with any of my edits, feel free to edit my talk page.


If you'd like to contact me, either use the OSM message function or contact me on the only social media channel that I monitor, mastodon/ - or on Telegram/@kmpoppe


I support the idea Open-Source and would encourage everyone to do so as well. Things I've worked/I'm working on include:

  • 2FactorAuth: A great collection of sites, using 2-Factor-Authentication for enhanced security - (on GitHub)
  • MapSwipe: This mobile app easily allows users to support the Humanitarian OSM Team by presenting you with easy tasks (e.g. identifying building and roads). The data flows into the Tasking Manager. This supports Humanitarian organizations to get better maps for faster response in a crisis. - (on GitHub)

My Plugins

I'm a programmer by heart and have been for 25-ish years. So, naturally, I thought I could also contribute something here.
