Student at the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin


I am a geo-nerd, traveller, and OSM enthusiast. I'm working in the OpenStreetMap Project since 2012. I collect data from all the places I've visited and contributed it to the Project. I also do some remote mapping in Indonesia to keep the quality of OSM data more even. For me it is one of the biggest challenge to keep the quality of the data in OSM balanced.

In 2014 I've started to study "Geoinformation" at the Beuth University in Berlin, Germany. In the first two Semester we focused on work with Adobe Illustrator, ArcMap and programming in Java. In my spare time I like to work with JavaScript, CSS and HTML. I will be done with my bachelor studies soon and I am very impressed by the endless Open Source Technologies we have to analyze, present and work with all of those different spatial information available these days. It is very interesting to see what some people do with these opportunities and I am proud to be a part of this environment. Lastly, I would like to share what Lizy Diamond said on her blog: "I will always be a student. In the wide world of geospatial technology, we are all going to be students forever."
