Hi all,

For some time now I've been working on the OpenStreetMap Watch List 
project[1] and on integrating OWL into the main OSM website.

At this point I've got something slowly approaching beta status and I 
would appreciate early feedback from the community.

You can see it in action here:


Couple of things:

* Zoom levels >= 14 should be usable. On lower zoom levels it sometimes 
takes a lot of time to show history. Also I don't have clear idea yet 
what to really show on the lower zoom levels - what would be useful - so 
suggestions are welcome.

* I'm actively working on this instance so don't be surprised when 
something breaks or there is no data at all etc. - it's a beta version :-)

* You can click on nodes/ways in the map to get more details about 
changes :-)

Any comments are welcome.
