Traveling in Cuba (offline)

In 2019 I was in Cuba for a conference that took place there.

During the preparation of the trip it occured to me that internet access in the country is on the one hand slow and not well developed. On the other hand, that mobile internet access via roaming is obscenely expensive. It was foreseeable that I would have to do without mobile internet for a week, and consequently without online navigation. Preparations are in order.

Unterwegs auf Kuba (offline)

2019 war ich auf Kuba, für eine Konferenz welche dort stattgefunden hat.

Bei der Vorbereitung der Reise stellte sich heraus dass der Internetzugang im Land einerseits langsam ist, und nicht gut ausgebaut. Und andererseits dass der mobile Internetzugang über Roaming obszön teuer ist. Es war also abzusehen dass ich eine Woche ohne mobiles Internet auskommen muss, und demzufolge auch ohne online Navigation. Vorbereitungen waren notwendig.

How I improve OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap is an awesome project. Contributors constantly improve a online map and add new data, fix items in the map which did change in the real world, or improve the data for a number of projects (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, List) building on top of the map. Being outside a lot, I figured that I can contribute as well. It's just a question of how to transport the data from "out there" back to the laptop in my office. After probing around and trying a few tools, I came up with 3 different ways, depending on the situation and amount of changes.
