Not much activity near here

Posted by Patrick_Keogh on 4 March 2013 in English (English)

If I look at the list of other OSM users near me the most recent update was seven months ago! Nothing new around here? Certainly lots of new buildings that could be added to the map in places like Braddon.

That just lists people who've registered their home location near you.

Not all edits in an area will be by people who's "home location" is nearby.

You might get a better idea of an area's edits by using the "history" tab, e.g.: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changesets?bbox=149.0984%2C-35.3997%2C149.3548%2C-35.2836

(an improved history tab is in the pipeline)

Yes I understand that. I was commenting on the lack of activity by people who live in the entire north half of Canberra. I know they could potentially be mapping Boulder Colorado or Timbuktu, Mali. I also know that someone from Timbuktu could be mapping things in Canberra.
