API for analyzing and visualizing changes in OSM data
OWL (OpenStreetMap Watch List) is a service that monitors, processes and stores changes in OSM data. A major feature is that rather than calculate the bounding box of all changes in a changeset, OWL attaches changes to small tiles, which are more useful for visualization - it is possible to show only relevant changes, not all changes with overlapping bounding box.
|beta version returns a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error (as of July 2016), services are dead since at least December 2014 (it was working in June 2013)|
- Beta version of OWL/OSM.org website integration (new History tab powered by OWL) is running on zark (go to the location in question and click on "History (beta)").
