Non-modal and on-demand download/upload
|Reported by:||Vidar Gundersen||Owned by:||team|
I often would like to continue drawing while JOSM are committing edits, so a non-modal upload process would be nice. I admit there may be practical problems to this, for instance when there are conflicts.
And now that JOSM are aiming at better map styling support with the ongoing MapCSS effort, it is an interesting thought that JOSM could pull data in the background while the user is moving around, essentially making JOSM more like a vector map browser similar to what Cartagen (http://cartagen.org/) aims at, or Potlatch.
Add a capability to modify the style sheet live and JOSM will become an extremely neat customizable map browser and style sheet prototyping tool.
