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

Is there a way to visualize (say QGIS) the difference between two versions of OSM data? I did a couple test edits in JOSM by removing/adding turn restrictions and deleting roads for a dummy training dataset. Thru Osmosis, I created an osc file which is the diff between original osm and the version that I manipulated. I can see the xml info for this file but how do I "see" the data (roads, relationships, nodes, etc)?

This will not work with .osc fiels as they only contain the changes to the data, not the objects that have been affected by the changes (which for example means if you move a way node you will only see a position change in the node, and no change to the way it is a member of).

What you probably should be looking at are overpass augmented diffs and Achavi (a viewer for them).
