Features

Some notable features of JOSM are importing GPX files (GPS tracks), [5] working with aerial imagery (Including WMS , TMS and WMTS protocols) Support for multiple cartographic projections , layers, relationships editing, [6] data validation tools, data Filtering, offline work, [7] presets and rendering styles. [8] JOSM provides more than 200 keyboard shortcuts for the core functions. [9]

Many additional features (like tools for drawing buildings, adding Wikipedia links or viewing data in 3D) are available through the plugins . [10] [11] [12] [13] There are more than 100 of them in the repository. [14]

History

First changeset was created on 27 September 2005. [15] First version version (which required Java 5 [16] ) was made available on 4 October 2005 and [1] Current versioning scheme, using Code changeset number, was introduced in 2008. [17]

In 2014, the new artwork, which won a design contest. [18] From this year stable releases are identified with additional YY.MM internal version number (following r6763 – 14.01 [19] ), however they may not exactly reflect the release date. [20]

The highest number of edicts in OSM is done using JOSM. [21] The software was used to perform several large scale OSM imports, including TIGER data in the United States. [22]

JOSM can also be used for editing an OSM sister project OpenHistoricalMap . [23] It’s included as a package in Many Linux distributions like Ubuntu , [24] [25] Debian , [26]Fedora , [27] Arch Linux [28] and the OSGeo Live DVD [29]
