We built a visualization tool for the history of contributions/edits/additions/changes in OpenStreetMaps. Our project uses latest OSM data (obtained dynamically via an API) to display history of contributions to the map in a given area. (GitHub: https://github.com/Dalimil/Smart-Data...)

In addition to that, we extended our map by creating a layer with available water points in Africa (we had to pre-download this data due to its size). This allows anybody to easily find close water sources.
Although we focused on water wells, this idea can be easily extended to show any kind of information recorded in OSM data, such as hospitals, landmarks, railways,...

Technologies used: OpenStreetMaps, Leaflet, Mapbox + OSM API, OSM XML, OSM PBF + jQuery, JavaScript, CSS, Material design, Python,...
