Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I don't see any information related to the date of the last modification on some particular object (point, polyline, area). I think in some case it could be usefull to understand if people use gpx trace for example that ortho imagery cannot show because too old...

To see the revision history of an item on the standard OSM map:

  • Zoom in to the area of interest.
  • Select "browse map data" on the edit menu (click the little triangle to the right). Nodes will highlight in green, ways in black.
  • Click on the item that you're interested in.
  • Click "details"
  • Click "view history"

If you want an overview map of how old data is in an area then ITO OSM Mapper can show you this as an overlay map with ways coloured as to when the data was last changed. It can also show who contributed the data and analyse tags and other data in a similar way.
