Hi everyone,

Here's a map I made of the remapping efforts in Sydney. The users
represented are those using Simon Poole's Task Manager [1] to remap the
area - I'm sure there other mappers who have done significant repairs but
haven't been using the task manager. Specifically, these are all the nodes
created or edited by remappers the two weeks between July26 and August 7.
The map was made with Tilemill [2] and a really long OverpassAPI call [3].
You can see how many nodes were either created or edited by each user in
this gist [4].

the map:

You can make similar visualizations following this guide [5], but I'm
particularly interested in how visualizations like this could be helpful in
motivating remapping efforts, and what we can do to make progress
visualizations like this one more better + more effective. I'm excited to
hear feedback, or where else visualizations might be useful.
