About

My name is Andy Allan and I'm a digital cartographer based in London. I started contributing to OpenStreetMap in 2006 as a volunteer mapper, based in London. I created the first version of OpenCycleMap in 2007, and have been working full time on OpenStreetMap related projects since early 2008.

The Thunderforest Platform is the 4th major revision of the systems that powers OpenCycleMap. With mapnik and postgis at its core, supported with mod_tile, squid, and a host of other components, it provides robust, fast, reliable and wonderful-looking maps. The Thunderforest Platform has enabled me to expand to easily host multiple map styles and serve millions of requests per month to clients all around the globe.
