>    it took me a bit longer than expected but here's my tool for
>creating historic OSM coverage animations:
>It generates animated GIF images of (almost) any area and size, and you
>can specify a date range and how many planet files you want it to use.
>It paints dots (or filled rectangles/circles) for each node; you can
>have a landsat or vmap0 background or an empty one if you prefer.
>Since creation of these images takes some time (around 5 minutes if you
>request all of Europe), the service uses a queue mechanism, i.e. you
>tell it what you want and come back later to see the results. All
>results are visible to all visitors.
>The request form is a bit cluttered but I trust you will find it useful.
>It is not really intended for the "end user" (why would they be
>interested in what data OSM had half a year ago), rather for the
>individual mapper(s) who want to see the progress they've made over time.
>Some examples are already up on the site.
