Updated Status for Unmapped Places

The last unmapped places analysis for OpenStreetMap that I conducted is nearly eight months ago. So I figured it was about time to create a new one. You can read in the last blog post how my algorithm exactly works.

However, at the moment (Nov. 4th. 2011) we have (according to the Geofabrik extract) about 597 000 entries in OSM for places that are located within “Europe“. This means we have an overall increase of about 90 000 places within the past eight months. We can separate them into several types with different values:

  • City: 1093 (as of March 11th, 2011 it was 1055 ; +3.6%)
  • Town: 16213 (as of March 11th, 2011 it was 16106 ; +0.7%)
  • Suburb: 29642 (as of March 11th, 2011 it was 24913 ; +19.0%)
  • Village: 301638 (as of March 11th, 2011 it was 278691 ; +8.2%)
