See the OpenStreetMap coverage evolving

There has been a lot of buzz regarding OpenStreetMap during the last days e.g. here or here. However, I learned from several people that they did not understand why interest in OpenStreetMap has increased e.g. here. I thought it is time to visualize some of the recent map development. ITO has done some very nice visualization on OpenStreetMap but I thought a time lapse video on the evolution of the map is missing. Just watch the video for the European map and see if the buzz is justified.

There are other versions for Germany only and (slower) versions for Europe in Full HD and Germany in HD.
