    4 == Map Projection ==

    6 You can change the map projection method between Mercator, and some others. Be aware that projections maybe only valid for a certain area of the world.
     7Settings for the map projection and data interpretation
    8 == Map Paint Styles == #FIXME
     9**Note**: On each startup JOSM sets the projection method, the coordinate display format and the system of measurement back to user default settings.
    10 == Tagging Presets ==
     11== Projection method ==
     12For the current session the projection method can be changed here. \\
     13A list of common projections is offered. This list offers common projections (categories) by their name. The second to last entry, ''By Code (ESPG)'', offers a complete list of all known projection codes with a filter option on top. With the last entry, customs projections can be set.
    12 [wiki:TaggingPresets Presets] allow you to select predefined tags for ways / nodes. From this area of the preferences menu you can choose which presets to use.
    14 You can enable the default set of tagging presets.
     17 Projection code:: shows the EPSG code for the projection.
     18 Bounds:: shows the region where the projection is valid. \\
     19 Some projections are valid only for small parts of the world. \\
    16 If also / instead you wish to use your own presets then you should enter on this page the source for the preset file. The source can be a
     21Common default projection for JOSM is ''Mercator (EPSG:3857)''. \\
     22It has certain advantages, one of them is that geometric figures (e.g. circles and rectangles) aren't deformed when displayed. \\
     23JOSM re-projects raster images from the projection of the source automatically to the current projection method.
    18  - local file path (C:\Foo\Bar.xml)
    19  - URL ( or
    20  - resource path (e.g. resource://data/annotations.xml), in which case the file has to be included in an plugin loaded at JOSM startup.
     25 Set as default::
     26 With this button the user default setting for the projection method is set.
     27 It is visible in [wikitr:/Help/ExpertMode Expert mode] only, #14877.
    22 == File Backup == #BackupSettings
    23 If you save geo data to a local file and the file already exists JOSM writes the data to a temporary file (with the suffix {{{~}}}). It then copies the temporary file to the target file.
    24 In the File Backup settings you can specify whether JOSM should delete the temporary file or whether it should leave it as "backup" in the file system.
    26   1. Go to the tab '''File backup''' in the Map Preferences
    27   2. Select or deselect the checkbox '''Keep backup files'''
     30== Display coordinates as ==
     31Set the user default coordinate format (Decimal, Degrees, Nautical or Projected Coordinates).
     34== System of measurement ==
     35Set the user default system of measurement (Metric, Chinese, Imperial or Nautical Mile).
     37In the [wikitr:/Help/StatusBar status bar] the coordinate format and the system of measurement can be changed in the context menu for the current session, individually.
     38So the numbers in ''Bounds'' may not fit to ''Display coordinates as''.
