I would like to get an export (xml or json) of all the changes that have been made in my city for the last X months (or a for certain period, i.e from March till June).

I know the bounding box, I know the period - what are my options?

To expand on @escada's answer, an example ruleset for Overpass would be:

out body;
out skel qt;

The above would return all nodes modified after 14th May 2016.

  • replace 'node' with 'way' or 'relation' as required
  • replace a,b,c,d with lat/lons corresponding with: a=latitude south, b=longitude west, c=latitude north, d=longitude east

The ruleset can be pasted into https://overpass-turbo.eu/
