The Overpass API allows to query for data which has been touched the last time by a particular user. You can visualize this result using overpass turbo. See this example for your user.

In addition to the methods suggested by @BCNorwich and @scai, if you are only interested in showing the general areas and how much editing you've done, there are "heat maps". For example:

and if you prefer to see your contributions in a more statistical form go here enter your user name in the box and hit 'search'.

Greet Solution, to Show my statistical data by tables and heat maps :D Thank you very much, very interesting method

one problem with both tools (statistical contribution,Heat Map )that the website does not synchronize the data periodically, so some of the information are not up to date and the statistical data are not accurate.

Because pre-calculating such data for every user is a very expensive operation.

Thank you... This method used to search for my contribution, not other person contribution

(08 Sep '13, 10:55) almegdadi

... then simply replace your username by the other person's one in that URL.

Another option is ITO World's OSM Mapper. Once registered you can define an area or areas that you're interested in, and sort contributions there by tags, sessions or users.

You can use the new SPARQL service that combines OSM and Wikidata. This example shows a map of all OSM objects with the last edit by the given user, made in a certain time period. Different object types (nodes/ways/rels) are shown in different color, and can be individually hidden/shown.


  ?osmId osmm:user 'nyuriks' ;
         osmm:loc ?loc ;
         osmm:type ?layer .

  # Filter by timestamp
  ?osmId osmm:timestamp ?ts .
  FILTER ("2017-03-01T00:00:00Z"^^xsd:dateTime < ?ts &&
          ?ts < "2017-03-05T00:00:00Z"^^xsd:dateTime)
