ID is a free software online editor for OpenStreetMap geodata created in JavaScript and released in 2013. It is designed to be simple and user friendly [4]and is used as a default editor on main OSM page.

Usage

It’s the most popular OSM editor by number of users. [5]

ID’s features include native support for Mapillary photos. [6]

Some specialized forks of iD:

  • Strava Slide , which allows easy ways to match GPS tracks collected by Strava users [7]
  • ID-indoor , which is intended for indoor mapping [8]
  • Mapeo , experimental editor for offline mapping in remote environments [9] [10] [11]

Name

The choice of iD as a name is related to the popularity of getElementById in JavaScript, a combination of i Pad with System D , and a tribute to the Citroen iD car model. It was also easier to be able to pronounce than Potlatch . [12]

Technical background

This editor was meant to be a Potlatch 2 architecture reimplementation in JavaScript with redesigned user interface. The only big internal changes Was departure from XML tagging preset architecture to a JSON -based one. [12]

While the initial versions were based on Dojo framework, [13] iD now uses D3.js library for rendering and its primary mode of rendering is via SVG . Its core architecture is modular and designed to be easily used in other JavaScript-based tools for OpenStreetMap. [14]
