node placement tools

Description (last modified by skyper)

I whish the JOSM team good luck in the new year and I wish... to have some tools to aid node placement.

  • enter nodes longitude and latitude by hand
  • place a node at a specified distance and azimuth from another node
  • place a node(s) at specified distance from a way (this could help for #67). One selects a way, some nodes and, either, enters the distance in the dialog (I prefere this), or the distance is taken from one (which?) of nodes. Then every node is moved along a line between it and the way and transversal to the selected way.
  • align three nodes in line but, shift one of the outers not the inner one, so one can elongate already existing way, preserving its direction.

With this set of tools I think it should be possible to draw quite accurately with only masurement tape and few gps points. Think about drawing buildings' outlines.

JOSM is a great tool! In the area of drawingtools though, great progress could be made. Maybe JOSM could profit from some kind of OpenSource Java 2D-CAD project somewhere...

It's already possible to add nodes with coordinates. wiki:Help/Action/AddNode

Does the function to enter nodes with lat/lon also solve the requirements of #7975?
