Dear all,

house numbers are one of the areas where in OSM a lot of things are still to 
do even in well mapped regions. To support mapping efforts, there are two new 
tools available


http://overpass-api.de/api/hausnummern

shows the already existing house numbers. This allows to plan the next mapping 
tour more centered around poorly covered regions. These are shown on zoom 
levels 16 to 18. For example a mixed situation in the potential SoTM city 
Birmingham:

api.de/api/hausnummern?zoom=16&lat=52.48185&lon=-1.91794&layers=BT

(link in one line)


http://qa.poole.ch/

shows buildings that don't have a house number. This is helpful to spot 
forgotten addresses. The same part of Birmingham:

Cheers and happy mapping,

Roland
