This paper presents an analysis of the evolution of OSM street network representations. Three urban areas in Ireland were analysed where each evolves from containing little street network detail to a highly detailed street network. In order to characterise this evolution a number of metric and topological characteristics were computed. Some characteristics exhibited broadly similar behaviour in each region. This may be a attributed to similarities in the degree of contributor activity and intrinsic universal mapping procedures exhibited by contributors||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2013, Springer-Verlag||Keywords:||OpenStreetMap||DOI:||10.1140/epjst/e2013-01718-2||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
