Street light data for London

London, the birthplace of OpenStreetMap, is already the largest city in the world to have lots of street light data. When I accepted the contributor terms a year ago today, it didn't have much.

This is the state of street lights, one year on – probably worthy of a mention on the weekly summary, but how do I get older snapshots of the OSM maps so I can compare it?

Happy Diwali everyone.

Location: Westminster, Whitehall, City of Westminster, London, Greater London, England, WC2E, United Kingdom

Very impressive, how did you cover such a large area checking for street lighting?

Driving trips over the last three years, as well as recent public transport trips within the M25 (see 20 November 2012 post).

Wow, impressive indeed! It's interesting to look at the particular patterns of unlit road in London, so few as they are.
