13 nov 2007: Lots of things has happened. Skara is now 100% covered and Tidaholm is about 75% covered. Also started to work on Skövde, but it's a bit larger then any town I've mapped so far. Someone living in Skövde who can help me? :)

I've also attended to the second mapping party in Sweden which took place in Västerås (see Västerås 2007-10-13 for details). Thank you all for a nice weekend!

12 aug 2007: Currently working on an example page for tagging roads in Sweden.

6 may 2007: Finally, Västra Stambanan - the main railway line between Stockholm and Gothenburg is complete. There was a piece missing between Hallsberg and Katrineholm and I've tried to track it several times. But this wednesday I got it!

I have also spent time on mapping lake Vättern, the second largest lake in Sweden. The northern part however contains a great number of islands which I didn't had time to map so feel free to adjust the coastline.
