My name is Simon and I do Mapillary. On Mapillary I am also tryl, @MikkelsenDotTV at Twitter and simonmikkelsen at GitHub. I live in Aarhus, Denmark with my girlfriend and 2 children.
Professionally I am a software engineer at at large private company that does software for millitary, healthcare, public sector and libraries. I cannot tell you exactly what I do, because I would have to kill you
I also do photography on a semi professional level. I have done a lot of work for a local newspaper and been the videographer for several music videos.
Mapillary is a combination of technology and photography and I have contributed in both ways. As of writing about 150.000 images and 1 Python script.
But with two kids, one being 1½ year and the other 1½ month old there is no time for all this! A lot of my mapping is done by taking small detours when I go somewhere. The next day I will take a slightly different detour. Most of my mapping is done around a triangle of my home, work and kids kindergarten.
I mostly use a bike with an action cam. Hope to get more.
I think Mapillary is awsome! I remember when OSM was completely useless in Aarhus and less than a year later it had every detail. I try to photograph in every detail to be a good example to other mappers. On the Aarhus map you can see where I have been.
When some bugs get ironed out of the new viewer I will try to recruit friends and colleagues to map too.
