Check latest changes in certain area

I quickly want to introduce the tool “Latest Changes” to the ones of you, who don’t know it yet. The purpose is to check recent OSM changes within a certain cartographic boundary, for example your home town. It is very simple and powerful:

  1. Open the Latest-Changes web app
  2. Zoom to the area of interest
  3. Check and validate the changesets of the last 7 days (1 day, 3 days, 1 month).
  4. Bookmark the URL to regularly come back and monitor your area of interest.

The link under 1. leads to my version of the app. The original one can be found under
