In this talk, large scale data production events in OSM are identified, characterized, and their spatio-temporal patterns and impacts are analyzed. The results show that remote mapping events produce more data today than bulk imports, yet that the former type has a more lasting impact on representation, hence pointing towards possible steps for maximizing the positive influences of events of different types.
