A Super Cool Animated Visualization of All Edits Made to Open Street Map During 2012
Another year has passed and that means another super cool animated visualization created by Derick Rethans.
A hi-def version of the animation, “OpenStreetMap: A Year of Edits 2012” is available on Vimeo along with this info:
[The] animation shows all additions and modifications of nodes (flashes) and cumulative edits (fading to purple) in 2012. Additional visualisations are the redaction bot’s work (flying away yellow spheres) and the shift to ODbL (green flash). It gives a good overview of the effort that 1000s of contributors put in to make OpenStreetMap the best source of mapping data.
