I don't give a flying monkey's for tag voting, automatic changebots, endless discussions, categories, or any of that crap, but prefer to get on and actually do stuff.

I am going to ignore the endless
rounds of proposals and voting
procedures. Instead, I will use
Taginfo and similar
tools to actually do some
productive mapping.

Hi I'm Rorym. I'm originally from Dublin, Ireland, but now living in Karlsruhe, Germany, and working in Geofabrik. In December 2019 I was elected to the OSMF Board of Directors.


What I'm working on


I'm helping to map townlands in Ireland, and have created to show off what we've done and debug it.

My Maps

Overpass queries

These are for my personal use, so I can copy/paste them into overpass turbo. This is things I wanna work on.

Irish pubs to map

Any amenity=* with “Irish” in the name=* and without the theme=irish tag.

try it yourself in overpass-turbo
);out meta;>;out meta qt;

LGBTQ+ venues to upgrade

try it yourself in overpass-turbo
);out meta;>;out meta qt;

Rivers with fixme=*

try it yourself in overpass-turbo
  way[waterway=river][fixme](([{{{minlon}}}&minlat={{{minlat}}}&maxlon={{{maxlon}}}&maxlat={{{maxlat}}} bbox={{{minlon}}},{{{minlat}}},{{{maxlon}}},{{{maxlat}}}]));
);out meta;>;out meta qt;

Poorly formatted cuisine=* values

try it yourself in overpass-turbo
);out meta;>;out meta qt;

Add a new query to wiki:

);out meta;>;out meta qt;


As of October 2019 I plan to try to map Irish pubs better. taggging@ discussion, talk-ie@ discussion. Setteling on theme=irish.

Existing data to upgrade:


I have made some OSM based stickers. They are 52x52mm square, and have a glossy finish.
