Microgrants committee members

  • Chris Beddow - US/Budapest

Christopher Beddow has been contributing to OpenStreetMap since 2015, while also working imagery and data integrations at Mapillary since 2016. While originally coming from Montana, USA, he contributes to local maps in such places as Hungary, Georgia, and Italy where he has been living and traveling over the past five years. He is interested in improving OSM in rural areas, mountainous regions, and communities that he has visited or hopes to visit one day.

  • Hanna Krüger - Germany, Koln

I started contributing to OSM in 2012 as a volunteer who mapped her home village and her home town in Lower Saxony in Germany. During the years I spend a lot of time in local mapping and some time in HOT, MapRoulette and other mapping challenges. In 2016 I organized my first mapping event and repeated this several times while taking part in the organization of the Fossgis Conference in Germany and the Elbe-Labe-Meeting, a mapping weekend for mappers from Germany and Czech Republic. One month ago I was elected as a board member for the German Local Chapter. In my daily life I am a mechanical engineer in the astrophysics department of the University in Cologne. My work is completely unrelated to my hobby OpenStreetMap.
