Layer > Convert To Data Layer

source:trunk/images/converttoosm.png

Creates a new OSM Data Layer comprising a source:trunk/images/data/way.png way for each track in the GPX data, consisting of a source:trunk/images/data/node.png node in sequence for each track point.

This is very much only a starting point. You will need to split the ways up, connect them with correct topology, move nodes around, thin them out, tag them and so on. Never upload raw converted ways!

When converting a Marker Layer the following "tags" of the marker will be converted to osm tags:

marker tag osm tag
name name
desc description
cmt note
src source
sym gpxicon

You can adjust or enhance this list by modifying the key gpx.to-osm-mapping in the advanced preferences. The key gpxicon is intended for custom icon display within JOSM, so make sure to not upload any keys which should not be part of the OSM database. (See also ticket #13717, the implementation of this feature.)
