I'm the Strategic Partnerships Manager at Mapillary. I work with the community and partners contributing imagery to the platform. Admittedly I first discovered OpenStreetMap when I joined Mapillary in 2015, but I quickly went from "Why would people spend their personal time on this" to "This is an incredible project that I want to be part of". I try to help out in both a work capacity and a personal capacity, arranging mapathons in my local Melbourne, working on FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2018 + 2019, editing in OpenStreetMap, and of course collecting as much street-level imagery as I can.
I love to travel as well and have started to discover the thrill of meeting OpenStreetMap communities in different parts of the world. If you're ever in Melbourne, come and say hi!

How useful are map features automatically extracted from street-level images? Can they be trusted? These are some of the questions we tried to answer through community campaigns and student-led research in 2019. We will share some of these lessons and elicit a broader discussion on the methods that can be used to turn automatically extracted features into useful OpenStreetMap data.
