Hey fellow mappers,

Some of you already know and have been using OSM Analytics since its
launch in April [0], but for those who are not familiar with it,
here's the direct link http://osm-analytics.org

This was initially a small prototype project, but given the interest
and feedback by many in the OSM community, we're now thinking how to
scale it and include more functionalities.

To start the discussion around a roadmap, we are holding a public
community chat this Thursday, August 18th, at 17:00UTC [1] on Gitter:

Everyone is welcome to join - I think we will have some more technical
discussions on the infrastructure design, but also less technical ones
about feature requests and ideas for new functions.

All OSMA code is public here [2]. Would be great to also discuss how
to integrate other OSM applications that focus on statistics, quality
assurance, user analytics and validation into OSMA and vice-versa. One
example is this work [3] by Jennings Anderson, built on a similar
processing workflow/stack, that has lots of great insights and
visualizations on OSM contributors and data quality.

If you are around on Thursday, we'd love you to join and share your
ideas. See you then!
