I am hosting a OSM Competition at my school. We will have 2~4 different teams, and I wanted to generate a live-scoreboard. I've used MissingMaps-leaderboard system, but I found out that that leaderboard is not so 'live'. (Takes HOURS to update the scoreboard)

My question is, how can I generate a live-scoreboard for the teams?

I think you ran into temporary problems with the leaderboard. I know yesterday they were working on improvements as it actually went down entirely. We're counting on it to work for our mapathon this Saturday.

As a plan B, you might look at the tiles mapped in the tasking manager. If you're having a contest, the number of -validated- tiles might be a better measure (if the contest is enough to skew motivations to winning as opposed to good mapping)

There's a way to query recent changes with Overpass-Turbo in an area of interest; that gives you a general overview. It's even possible to include specific mappers in those queries, but I believe that only works on a dev server or something.

If you want to build something yourself, look at methods for "filtering changesets".

Hi Joost,

Thank you for your swift answer. I'll definitely try the leaderboard again and follow your guidance.

Another plan B: a query here does generate some statistics http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-changesets?comment=missingmaps#2/7.9/37.3

It's not quite as sexy as the MM leaderboards, but it gives you the basics.

As someone who has recently spent several hours cleaning up after inexperienced users have deleted and moved lots of roads while hastily tracing buildings, let me offer a word of caution: If you create any kind of incentive for people, be very careful about what you base your measurements on. "Number of edits", "number of objects created" or "number of changesets created" can be very, very misleading figures; someone who traces 50 houses and in the process accidentally moves or deletes a street can easily have a negative net contribution to OSM. In other words, size doesn't matter!

Is there any update on this topic? It seems like there are still some issues with the leaderboard stats as no edits are shown for me or my colleagues.
