In my talk at State Of The Map 2011, I introduced a few new concepts relating to the local quality of OpenStreetMap data and its contributor community:
- The Community Scorecard which is a concise way to summarize the activity of a local OpenStreetMap community
- Data Temperature attempts to capture the ‘warmth’ of a local community in one easily interpretable figure
- The Temperature Map captures some of the most relevant metrics for way features, the age of the last update and the number of versions, in an abstracted image of the study area.
If you missed my session at SOTM11, here‘s its page on the OpenStreetMap wiki, with links to all relevant resources.
