FR: Je m'appelle Xavier, et j'habite depuis peu à Rauma en Finlande. Je suis passionné de randonnées et autres sports "nature". J'ai pris part au projet OSM depuis l'acquisition de mon GPS et je m'interesse principalement à mapper les sentiers, chemins, refuges, etc. rencontrées au cours de mes balades.
EN: My name is Xavier, and I recently moved in Rauma, Finland. I am passionate about hiking and outdoor sports in general. I recently gain some interest in the OSM project, actually since I bought my GPS device. I mostly contribute in OSM by mapping hiking trails and tracks, huts and whatever I come by while hiking. I will also try to fix a few errors here in the streets of Rauma.
My main contribution so far: Mapped a few trails along diverse National parks and hiking areas:
- Joutsijärvi hiking area, near Pori
- Seitseminen national park, north of Tampere
- Isojärvi national park, east of Tampere
- Repovesi national park, near Kouvola
- Pallas tunturi national park, near Raattama, Muonio, Lapland
- Salamajärvi national park, between Kokkola and Kuopio
- Evo hiking area, near Lahti
- - Map the Reitti Satakunta Pirkanmaa from Pori to Tampere. It's nearly complete. I miss the last 30km stretch to Ylöjarvi near Tampere. Also, the tagging should be perfected. (see http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1020103 and http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1020721) (hopefully complete by summer 2014)
- - Start to map some sections of the E6 European long distance trail here in Finland (see http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1017409) (will do my best to hike/bike most of the sections between Turku and Tampere in the Fall 2013)
- - Work on the Tour du Cervin trails (see relation http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1176308) (September 2013)
prefers to go outside and map.
