I made some edits to the OSM maps — changing routes that were listed as “open” to show that the require a “permit.” I do not see those edits revealed in the OSM maps. How long does it take for edits we make to be revealed in the publicly viewed maps?
It depends on which map. Of those displayed on the OpenStreetMap home page, the “Standard” and “Humanitarian” maps usually update quickly for the most-used zoom levels (unless there is a temporary glitch), but low zoom levels (and I think also the highest zoom level) can take longer. Other maps can take much longer, e.g. many apps that use OSM data update once a month.
Also note that you may need to refresh your own local browser cache to see changes.
Finally, no single map displays every type of mapped object or every possible tag, so not all edits cause a visible change. For example the standard layer generally does not display route relations such as public transport or hiking routes.
If you link to something you changed perhaps someone will be able to tell you whether you are simply experiencing the normal delay in rendering or there is some other issue.
Edit: looks like I was typing at the same time @PHerison was posting.
