Abstract

The tectonic plates of the Earth shift relative to each other, which creates the need to adapt coordinate values on a regular basis. However, such systematic adaptions are not carried out in case of the OpenStreetMap dataset, which should render possible to trace this effect within the dataset. We empirically demonstrate that the effect cannot be traced yet but will most likely become traceable in some years. Despite the potential traceability, the effect of plate motion will first become relevant in some decades.
