OSM Stats explores the growth of OpenStreetMap over time. It has interactive pretty graphs for all kinds of variables over time, like this showing the growth in data in Spain over time:

Or, how about Haiti? Notice the massive spikes following the eathquake there:

Unfortunately the site needs some TLC. Data for 2017 is missing and some countries are blank entirely, like Belgium:

 People have been asking to get this fixed:

 It's going to cost some time and money to fix the code, open source it and continue hosting. Not a lot, but the site doesn't pay for itself either.

So this Kickstarter is an experiment to see if we can fix it, or just shut it down. If you back the project your name or logo will go on the front as a supporter. If we reach $1k it'll be enough to fix the bugs and host it for 1-2 years, otherwise it will gently sublimate in to the background radiation of the universe.

Micro Funding

What's also kind of interesting is to see if things can be built or maintained via this kind of micro funding where not a lot of cash is needed to keep something alive, but still more than the cost of a few sandwiches. We learn something about micro funding whether this gets funded or not.

Risks and challenges

I've run multiple kick starters before, and there really are no risks or challenges here.
