Markus Semm, managing director and founder of ENAiKOON,
will be speaking at the FOSSGIS 2013 conference about Keypad-Mapper 3, an ENAiKOON-developed Android app that
allows users to record house numbers and addresses for OpenStreetMap (OSM).
Mr. Semm will be giving his speech on Thursday June 13, 2013 at 11:30. The
three-day conference will take place from June 12 – 14 in Rapperswil,
Switzerland. FOSSGIS (Free and Open Source Software for Geographic Information
System) is a German-speaking association founded in 2001 with the goal to
promote free and open-source GIS software. Their conference participation has
grown over the years with over 400 participants each year. For those

Keypad-Mapper 3 is an easy-to-use, new version of the well-known Android app
that records the GPS coordinates of house numbers so that users can add them
later to OSM. This free app records house numbers, saves address data, takes
GPS photos to support the mapper when entering the data in JOSM, indicates the
GPS reception strength of GPS and GLONASS, and exports the recorded
information. This app was developed for the free contribution and development
of free map data, the source code is published on GitHub. Anyone can install this app and start collecting
house numbers without any extra cost. ENAiKOON believes that everyone should
have access to free navigation software and map data, and this app will help
create a complete database of map data. To contribute to OSM, all you need is
an account with www.openstreetmap.org, acquire house numbers, and upload the
collected data to the OSM database.
It’s that easy! Keypad-Mapper 3 is now available for download on Google Play
