What is your OSM Rank ?

by Pascal Neis - Published: December 17th, 2010

And again, I did a small update to “How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap ?” (http://hdyc.neis-one.org).

You can now see your ranks within the OSM World, depending on how you have been contributing to the project!

Besides the regular OSM data update, implemented by applying the planet- & changeset-dump (dated 2010-12-15), I also added two additional rows with some information about your data. In the picture below you can see your rank in OpenStreetMap (1) separated by different OSM objects such as Nodes, Ways or Relations. The rank refers to the amount of objects that have been lastly modified by you (see also row: “… are the last modifier of:”). The percentage in the brackets gives you an impression of how big your contribution to the project has been so far in comparison to the whole OSM database.

Some more information about my current database (dated 2010-12-15):

  • At the moment about 111000 different users* are the last modifier in the OSM database
  • Overall about 149000 contributors have created a changeset
  • In the OSM database there are about 878000000 nodes, 73800000 ways and 790000 relations

*Remember: Not every member of the OSM project, which are currently more then 330000, has contributed!

I think a regular contributor should have a rank better then #14000. A really active one could have a rank better then #1000 and probably only bots are in the Top Ten. However, what is your OSM Rank ? >> http://hdyc.neis-one.org
Have fun !
