Here are the slides from my Mapping USA Talk:
Cartogram of total edits per state in 2020. Color represents total edits per sq. km. – in equal sized bins (QGIS calculated quantiles) from purple to green to yellow (Less insightful, but more aesthetic)
2020 saw 27k mappers edit OSM in the US. These mappers submitted 3.6M changesets, containing over 210M individual edits to OSM.
Total edits per county, normalized by area. Note that this generally results in a population map. Top 20 counties on the right.
Total edits per county, normalized by population (using 2019 est. population per county). Top 20 counties on the right.
Paid editors in the US in 2020 included Amazon (478 mappers) and other companies (270). Normalized by population
Editors making their first US edit in 2020.
22,510 mappers edited in only 1 state, here’s how it breaks down for the 2 - 52.
Top 2020 mappers per state, excluding obvious import and revert accounts.
All of these figures were computed from the OSM Changeset data available as an Amazon Public Dataset on AWS. This work was sponsored by Facebook.
