Hello :)

I'm mapping in Israel, contributing to HOT, and to the OSM Wiki. My main user is SafwatHalaby. I run scripts through the user SafwatHalaby_bot.

Personal site:



I operate a bot in Israel. The bot is a semi-automatic collection of scripts for automated edits, written in Javascript using the JOSM Scripting Plugin. Many thanks to Gubaer, who is maintaining the plugin and quickly fixing reported issues. Strictly speaking, the bot is not a fully-fledged bot. It has to be manually run. All scripts are explained in detail below. The bot currently operates in Israel and in West Bank area C.


The bot currently uses the following scripts. Click a script for details.
