"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea" - Antoine de Saint-Exupery, #OpenStreetMap aerial surveyor and quality philosopher
I love this philosophy! 🙂
The ESRI World Imagery (Clarity) is very nice for tracing things into #OpenStreetMap
Current #OpenStreetMap project involves a lot of building mapping. I'm using JOSM of course. I have noticed a few "paperclips"/annoyances and I'll have to send some patches to improve the tools/plugins around this.
I really would like to get better at designing & making my own maps (from #OpenStreetMap data obviously!) I know how to set up PostGIS & configure Mapnik, but maybe I should try to get better at QGis?
There's a #JOSM plugin to continue the 'Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett' message?
The next #OpenStreetMap hack weekend in #Karlsruhe will be on 15/16 Feb 2020
The Philippines' 1st ("ata") LGBTQI+ #OpenStreetMap Mapping Party by MAP BEKS

I'm a candidate for the #OpenStreetMap Foundation board. I'll do a video chat/conference if you wanna ask me anything. Details here:
