Been mapping around the Blue Mountains NSW area since mid 2008 when I first discovered OSM. My first edit was to fix a typo in one of the local streets. My goal is to help build a better map for the community to use and not rely on the "Don't Be Evil" corporation.
I use either my bluetooth GPS receiver or the internal Nokia Navigator GPS and Mobile Trail Explorer software for collecting GPS traces. NearMap has been a great benefit and I appreciate them allowing me improve OSM with their PhotoMaps.
