3.SH NAME
4josm \- Java OpenStreetMap Editor
5.SH SYNOPSIS
6.B josm
7.SH DESCRIPTION
8.B JOSM
9is an editor for OpenStreetMap written in Java 7.
10.PP
11.B OpenStreetMap
12is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data such as street maps to anyone
13who wants them. It allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from
14anywhere on earth.
15The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or technical
16restrictions on their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected
17ways.
