The OSMI visualization is much more comprehensive and I would recommend it
to anyone interested in doing systematic remapping. What I will do is add a
link to the Inspektor for the same extent.
What my map adds to the Inspektor view is a focus on the main road system.
Also, it is very easy to add a new query to the visualization. It is
currently updated every hour.
