Post Box and Post Office History (beta)

This is a quick page I've put together to show some graphs of historical data of UK post boxes and post offices in OpenStreetMap. The graphs are static at the moment, but hopefully I'll get some sort of automatic updating sorted out at some point.

Post Box Progress

The graphs above show the total number of amenity=post_box nodes in an area roughly corresponding to the UK, and the number of such nodes with a ref=* key that matches one from the official list.

Post Office Progress

The graph above shows both the total number of amenity=post_office nodes and ways in an area roughly corresponding to the UK, together with the number that have been 'matched' (by geographic proximity) to a Post Office on an official list. Jumps in the latter are cuased by the list being updated.
