About Me

Hiya, this is Michael from Germany. I'm actually from the northern part of germany (Rostock), but living in Leipzig for a long time, now.


Therefore I mostly map the Leipzig country, especially the region around Frohburg. But I also do some mapping on the North Island of New Zealand.


During spring time 2008 I drove around in Frohburg several times with my GPS (MDPNA100/MD95270 Pocket PC with WM2003). This way I've been able to map more then 90% of the city's streets.
