The exploration of the history of OpenStreetMap data presents an important step to uncover semantic connections, regions of interest and their contiguity in time and space at varying scales. Therefore, the HeiGIT Big Spatial Data Analytics team presents a first beta version of the new OpenStreetMap History eXplorer (ohsomeHeX). It resembles the idea of the OSMatrix¹, [...]
