My Activities

I am mostly working here in OSM for my place of birth Reken. I live in Haan and that is my second place for mapping.

I worked on "Strassenlisten" @ This contains

  • collecting official list
  • try to reduce errors in list

I have tried to move my activities more to software development and started to implement OSMBC, the current editorial tool for weeklyOSM and Wochennotiz.

Now this tool is updated regulary, and i work as occasional Editor for weeklyOSM and Wochennotiz.

My OSM Motivation

I startet with my "GEO" hobby with geocaching and my family. As maps for my garmin seemed to be to expensive for me, i found the free of charge solution OpenStreetMap.

Now i am working at OSM to pay for my map usage :). I am working on OSM to have fun, too.
