2012 Mapping after licence redaction

User:Jnicho02 asked a question about remapping Brighton after licence redaction changes are automatically applied. http://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/15007/tools-to-help-with-remapping-after-licence-redaction. The response was that http://tools.geofabrik.de/osmi/?view=redactionbot&lon=-0.14421&lat=50.82845&zoom=12 could be used to identify roads and features that need remapping.
