|Offline - TagWatch is now offline. Please use Taginfo instead.|
Tagwatch (tagwatch.stoecker.eu) provided statistics on tag usage within the OpenStreetMap database. It generated information pages about tags - similar to the Map Features wiki tag documentation, but generated automatically based on actual tag usage.
- It looked for the tags actually being used within OSM, rather than what someone says ought to be used
- It used the actual rendering (from osmarender z17 tilesheet), so you can see what the feature looks like on the map
As of March 2014, Tagwatch is discontinued. All URL's redirect to the start page of the more flexible Taginfo service.
If you run this script on a regular basis please do this outside the peak times (8:00-23:30 GMT). This will help to reduce the serverload on the wiki for others.
- Source code (GGPL 3.0)
- Requires Perl, LWP, Perl Mediawiki module, Perl Math::Round, Inkscape, xsltproc, etc.
These are all wiki pages, which lets us watch and access-control peoples' changes to them. When you run the program, these pages get read in and used to construct the HTML pages.
