History based quality measures of OpenStreetMap now in the ohsome dashboard
11-30, 12:05–12:10 (Africa/Douala), Auditorium
Language: English

The Ohsome Dashboard has created an alternative way to understand OpenStreetMap (OSM) data, providing a user-friendly interface to the extensive history of OSM. In this lightning talk, we showcase the latest addition to the Ohsome Dashboard: quality metrics. With these metrics, users gain insights not only into the historical evolution but also the completeness of OSM objects in a region.

By seamlessly integrating quality metrics, such as saturations, into the Ohsome Dashboard, users can now obtain a comprehensive overview of OSM data. This enhancement enables users to better understand the completeness and accuracy of OSM data, uncover hidden patterns, identify data biases, and make more informed decisions.
