OpenStreetMap: where should the next recruitment drive be?

Posted by mcld on 9 January 2013 in English (English)

Here's a data-driven way to decide where the next OpenStreetMap recruitment drive should be. Take the geographical spread of edits in 2012, and divide it by the geographical spread of the population, to see where there are most/least edits "per person":

Plot of edits per population density

More details on my blog article about it.

Nice graphic.

I actually just downloaded a bunch of data for a motorcycle trip through Mexico in about a month. I was surprised at the level of detail that exists in the open street map.

Will try to take as many GPX tracks as possible while on the road. ;-)
