How did you contribute the *last couple of months* to OpenStreetMap?

I think most of you know my website: “How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap?“. It is a website where you can find information about OpenStreetMap contributors. You can see the first/last node the contributor placed and the amount of created nodes, ways, relations and other things.

Today I added a new diagram (1). It shows your monthly contributions to OpenStreetMap for the past 12 months as a chart and it’s based on the latest Full OSM History Planet Dump. In the following picture you can see the updates.

By clicking at “Get more Information …” (below the chart) you can see your past contributions in more detail. Separated into different categories such as created, touched and your “last modifier” OSM objects (nodes, ways and relations).

As a second update you can now see your first OSM way and OSM relation at the website (2). Check it out here: http://hdyc.neis-one.org

thx @ maɪˈæmɪ Dennis 🙂

What is your OSM Rank ?

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

ChangeSets in HDYC

Last weekend I added some information to “How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap ?“. The “ChangeSets” (1) of an OpenStreetMap contributor can be seen now too. To be more specific, you get the following numbers:

  • ChangeSets == Overall amount of your ChangeSets
  • Changes == Overall amount of your changes within your ChangeSets
  • First ChangeSet == Date of your first ChangeSet
  • Last ChangeSet == Date of your last ChangeSet

You can make this information visible by clicking the “more“-link (2)! In the following picture below you can see the new add-on:

Notice that the date that is shown in the ChangeSet-information field (see image above) is always the same as the date that is being displayed underneath the “Your last Node … “-image (3). Check it out here: http://hdyc.neis-one.org

Small add-ons to “How did you contribute …”?

Because of the upcoming license discussions, I made some small additions to the “How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap?” website. First (1) I imported a new planet dump file dated 11/17/2010. Additionally the user can get the information now if the OSM contributor has agreed to the new ODbL/CT, indicated by a green “Agreed” at the bottom part of the page.

If the OSM contributor has not agreed to the new ODbL/CT yet, it’s showing a different message (3), requesting the contributor to review and accept the new ODbL/CT here.

I hope that helps and please remember: If a contributor has not agreed to the new license yet, it could imply that he/she does not know about the license changes so far!
