we are teaching our cartography-students to work with OSM. Each student has his own task to do and his own OSM-username. I try to find a way to download the history of each student. Under http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/…/history I can see every node touched by a student. If it still exists or not. But I can’t download it. If I want to check the work of each student, I can not simply click through all these nodes… thats a never ending story…
This is why I need to find a way to download the data of each student.
My first thought: http://download.geofabrik.de. I can download the complete data of the country and look for the user-keyword. But it shows only the last user.
To have all the changes, even if some other user touched it, I need to know all users.
In http://overpass-turbo.eu its the same. I can ask for “user:…” and then it only shows me everything which was touched finally(!) by this user.
I although thought about QuickOSM in QGIS, but can’t find more than amenity=“restaurant” and so on. The points downloaded does not even show the name of the last user and QuickOSM does find anything using “user:…”.
I have heard with QuickOSM it would be possible to download the relations as well. Isn’t the user-history recorded by relations? How can I download OSM with all the relations using QGIS/QuickOSM?
If I download a very small area with the OpenStreetMap-Extension in ArcMap and tell it to download the relations as well, it does not stop to compute. Does not work…
Thanks a lot and greetings from germany,
