#21097 new enhancement

Add intelligent URI paste support

Reported by: gaben Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: URI paste Cc:


When copying information from websites, the email and phone number values often contain Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme prefix.

Examples are:

  • mailto:
  • tel:

(Full list available on the IANA website

Current procedure

Pasting these values to JOSM involves manually deleting the prefixes and changing tag types.

Ideal procedure

JOSM would recognize the tags and automatically change the tag type according to URI.

Note: there is the increasingly popular contact: prefix which should be considered when adding the tag type.

Mmh, often context of webpages are not allowed to add, due to license issues.
