Hi, I’m Birk. I’m a board member and a frequent contributor in MapLibre. I focus on getting the long-term decisions right, and on areas that are always of interest to us, such as higher performance, modernizing our stack, making workflows more intuitive and fostering collaboration amongst people and teams in the open ecosystem.

The world is changing so fast, and I believe MapLibre has this unique position as an open ecosystem to support high-quality geospatial visualizations across sciences, politics, tech and arts. I think it’s more important that ever to support this effort.
