Hi, my name is François Van Der Biest.

I live and map near Chambéry, Savoie, France. I'm registered as an OSM user since october 2006.

I'm working in the "GIS for the web" field at Camptocamp SA, and I've been in charge of the free geodata committee at the Francophone OSGeo Local Chapter for 3 years (2007-2010).

I'm also running server, which hosts several resources for the OSM community:

I've already held talks about OpenStreetMap and spread the good word at different occasions :

Mapping parties attended : Lyon 2008-06-14, Chambery 2008-09-26

Mapping parties I organized: EPFL Lausanne 2009-06-04, Conseil General 94 (France)

I was also involved in the Brest Metropole Oceane bulk data import and also several others bulk import (Communauté de Communes de la Presqu'Ile de Crozon, ...).

We may have met at the SOTM 2009 & 2010 ... if not, then maybe at the next SOTM ?
