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


Someone reverted a change I made a while ago to a particular road, but I have no idea who, why, or when, as I haven't checked the area in a while. History is unhelpful, as I have no idea which changeset has changed the way, or how to find it if one does. Is there any way to easily find this out? I'd like to check the history of any specific way on a road that was "demoted" from trunk to primary at one point, but don't know how.

Your recent edits have been in JOSM. Select the way in JOSM and press Ctrl-H (or select menu option View, History) for a history window which lets you compare versions, highlighting which tags have changed (or on the other tab which nodes were members).

Using a "diff" tool or just the OSM.org homepage history view of a specific way (in case you know its id) helps you.

Or the object's history view offered by our editors.
