I'm Andreas and I now live and work in Düsseldorf. I moved here from Ravensburg.

My current tool-set consists of JOSM on PC, iLOE on iPhone and the website on my android tablet.

While on my bike I use a GoPro camera(not anymore, my bike mounting got stolen) and a dashcam in my car to help with mapping.


Maps edited in

  • Germany
  • Switzerland
    • Bern - stuff relating to bus and trains
  • Austria
    • Wolfgangsee - all around the lake to make OSM a better experience for one of my former customers.
  • Japan
    • Tokyo - Ueno, Akihabara, Sumida (I originally added the Sky Tree as a node, but is has since been replaced by a real building)
    • Iwaki - Bing traces of (coastal) residential areas
    • some islands in the Tokyo Bay, the largest being Hatsushima (初島) in Shizuoka prefecture.


In case you should encounter the "AEGMIS Graphics Library" (using Qt's QNetworkDiskCache) or the "AEGMIS TileCache" (custom PHP caching proxy): It is possible that the used caching methods aren't working as brilliant as I wanted them to be.

Although I don't work at that company anymore, but I will forward any complaints and help with solving the issues.

Anyway, I am already working on my own Tile rendering. For now, I am using Maperitive, but I intend to switch to a proper Mapnik server in the near future.
