TagHistory is a tool letting you plot graphs showing tag usage stats over time.


You can compare multiple tags, and so use it to observe a shift in usage over time from one tag to another

A TagHistory graph showing the growth in leisure=swimming_pool mapping and the decline in use of the older tag amenity=swimming_pool

Martin Raifer's diary entry gives more details

Math1985' diary entry gives more example tag comparisons (and their histories)


It has an API! See TagHistory API docs
