This worldKit map shows the recent node edits in OpenStreetMap, updates
once a minute.

It's using the RSS feed at http://www.openstreetmap.org/feeds/nodes.rss

I have just updated this feed to include geotags; it also now fetches
the most recently edited nodes worldwide, when latitude/longitude args
are omitted.


There will be a big need for monitoring tools as OSM grows. In that
context, this is only a toy, but I think an interesting somewhat useful
toy. It also demonstrates what becomes easily doable with GeoRSS
syndication.
