v13 v14 15 15 * Slippy map provides a movable map like on the OSM front page with which you can interactively select the area to download. Only differences are that Shift+Click to zoom is not available, move the map the JOSM way by press and hold the right mouse button and select an area by press and hold the left mouse button. 16 16 17 18 17 19 * A Bounding Box tab where you can set the latitude/longitude bounds of the data to be downloaded, and also paste an URL from either www.openstreetmap.org or www.informationfreeway.org. 18 20 * To paste from [http://www.openstreetmap.org/index.html the map] on the OpenStreetMap site, zoom in to the area you are interested in, then either move the mouse over the "view" tab, and copy the resulting URL, or copy the permalink given in the bottom right corner. Then go to JOSM, and paste this URL into the "URL from www.openstreetmap.org" box. (In Windows to paste into the box, left click within the box, and then do CTRL+v). 19 21 * To paste from [http://www.informationfreeway.org www.informationfreeway.org] zoom to the area you are interested in, and then copy the permalink location from the bottom right of screen, and paste as described above. 20 22 23 24 21 25 * A Tile Numbers tab where you can enter number of tiles and a zoom level to download data of those tiles. This might look a little akward especially when reading [http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_map_tilenames how to compute the tile numbers]. But sometimes it comes in handy. Have a look at the [http://server.tah.openstreetmap.org/Browse/?layer=tile t@h browser] where you can quite easily determine the tile numbers in the image address when hovering the individual tiles with the mouse. 22 23 * A Bookmarks tab where you can select from your predefined bookmarks, or create a new bookmark from the current bounding box or the area defined in another tab respectively. 24 25 * On the Places tab you can find the functionality of th former namefinder plugin. Here you can search for specific places, street names, etc, in the OSM database. The server used is currently hardcoded to use the OSM Name finder described in [http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Name_finder the OSM-Wiki]. 26 26 27 27 * A world map where you can select an area for download using the mouse. The map is not detailed enough to actually select a very small area, but you can use it in conjunction with the other tabs—e.g. first select a bookmark, then zoom in on the world map and select an area slightly different from the bookmark area. The world map can be zoomed and panned just like the normal map display!
