CheckTheMonuments This map help you, to find the place withe the most monuments. Check it! A tool for quality assurance of historic objects. Many of the detected objects as "historic = monument" is not a monument in reality. They were out of ignorance or lack of matching tags detected as a monument. This map will assist in the correction. --Reneman (talk) 08:28, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Technically this visualisation approach is actually rather a clunky primitive way of working around browser marker limitations right? Sorry that sounds like harsh criticism... In fact my colleague did something quite similar for The results are kind of visually interesting (that site could also be a featured image proposal) but I can't help thinking a more "correct" way to work around browser marker overload is to do more advanced tricks with raster layers (like ) And that would make for a more appropriate "image of the week".
CheckTheMonuments is an interesting site and an interesting OSM data improving project though. Maybe we can promote via other channels

(up to here text comes from Featured_image_proposals) As Harry said that is not a pretty, interesting image which shows what the monuments project is about. --Aseerel4c26 (talk) 11:20, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
