I am Martijn van Exel, Nederlander in den vreemde, living in Salt Lake City because of the good people, the nice weather, the beautiful mountains, the great public transport and the delicious Mexican food. Oh, and because my wife is an Assistant Professor in the Art History department of the U.
This blog reflects my passion for all challenges that have ‘where‘ in them. I take these on in my spare time as well as on the clock – I am the resident OSM data and community expert at Telenav.
I am currently serving my second term as the President of the OpenStreetMap US Chapter board. This blog does not reflect the official position of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, the OSM US Chapter, or Telenav for that matter.
There’s a lot of things I love to do beside the geo stuff I write about here: hiking and skiing in beautiful places, photography — preferably with analog equipment, and passively and actively enjoying music, to name a few. I share some of my personal life on my microblog, schaaltreinen.nl.
The name oegeo means nothing.It was chosen for the sole merit that it’s short, has geo in it somewhere and it was available as a subdomain on wordpress.com.
