Welcome, Jim McAndrew!

Posted on 30 Sep 2013 by Nate Irwin

And just like that our team has grown from three to five in less than two weeks. I’m excited to welcome our newest team member, Jim McAndrew!

Jim will be taking over the reins of Places of Interest, which will eventually integrate OpenStreetMap and crowdsourcing into the National Park Service’s internal data workflows. His expertise and work will be a huge benefit to both Park Tiles and our larger enterprise GIS efforts.

Jim brings a tremendous amount of experience working with OpenStreetMap to the team. He has been an active member of the OpenStreetMap community since 2009, a board member of the US Chapter of OpenStreetMap for the last two years, and Vice President of the US Chapter for the last year.

Take a look at Jim’s team page for more information about his background and interests. You can also find him online on Twitter, GitHub, or the talk-us-nps OpenStreetMap mailing list. Welcome, Jim!
