Today we are launching OSM Analytics, a platform for exploring and analyzing OpenStreetMap data. With the current database growing to almost 50 gigabytes, and thousands of features added every day, OSM is officially entering the big data league. Making sense of this much data, globally, locally, and temporally, presents significant challenges.

by Mhairi O'Hara, Tyler Radford As of the 22nd of April there have been over a million and a half changes made to OpenStreetMap in response to the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Ecuador on the 16th of April. There have been 500+ aftershocks and the number of fatalities has also passed 500. Support is strong with more than 1,700 contributors volunteering their time to help map priority areas through the HOT Tasking Manager.

  Greetings HOT community, For a few years now we have been contemplating a new look, and more importantly - improved usability, of our website hotosm.org. In 2015 our Technical Working Group recruited HOT Voting Member, Felix Delattre, to generally manage and facilitate website development on a volunteer basis. Since then, we have been able to better coordinate and work on things here and there to make improvement; including the much needed project pages, member profiles, and more.
