Change of OSM object numbers through relicensing – Vers. 1

Most of you know that OSM will change its license. This means that all data of the OSM project must be relicensed and therefore the contributors have to accept the new contributor terms. Some information about the new ODbL license can be found here.

Since October 9th or rather 10th there is a list of OSM member accounts available that have agreed to the new license. Here you can find Richard’s announcement in the OSMF blog and Matt’s announcement on

Based on my “How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap?” database and the just mentioned “agreed users” list, I created some stats. Sadly they are (still) not up to date, but in my opinion interesting enough to publish them here anyway. In the first attempt I used the last modifier of an OSM object (node/way/relation) as the owner of the object. On the second analysis I use the creator (version=”1″) as the owner of the object.
