#4132 new enhancement

'Shift+g' to switch from all GPS traces to just mine

Description (last modified by simon04)

In Potlatch, 'Shift+g' shows only your traces and 'g' show all the
traces (
But the same shortcuts don't work in JOSM. Wouldn't it be nice ?

In areas which contain many GPS traces, that layer can be an horrible mess - especially where many of the traces are low-quality. Finding which one is the carefully captured data that you trust for tracing that new street is very difficult. Potlatch's 'Shift+g' makes it easy. Let's have that in JOSM too !

This thread contains the discussion of that feature on talk@… :

I don't think we can implement this. The API does not allow to access that data. Neverthelesse leaving the report open. Maybe API changes somewhen.

Storing and loading the tracks locally is suggested solution for now.

Replying to stoecker:

Isn't trace metadata what we need for this wishlist item ?

Example "details" response:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="OpenStreetMap server">

<gpx_file id="38698"

name="rathfarnham_churchtown_nutgrove.gpx" lat="53.285644054" lon="-6.238367558"
user="robfitz" public="true" pending="false"


We do have the user name in the GPS track detail metadata. Is there anything else that is needed and that I might not be aware of ?
