    56=== JOSM Terminology ===
    67
    7  [[Image(source:trunk/images/data/node.svg,middle,inline,link=)]] Node:: A node is a point.
     8 [[JOSMImage(data/node,middle,inline,link=)]] Node:: A node is a point.
    89
    9  [[Image(source:trunk/images/data/way.svg,middle,inline,link=)]] Way:: A way is a line connecting multiple nodes. Way, therefore, is a general term for series of joined nodes, not just for roads or ways in reality.
     10 [[JOSMImage(data/way,middle,inline,link=)]] Way:: A way is a line connecting multiple nodes. Way, therefore, is a general term for series of joined nodes, not just for roads or ways in reality.
    1011
    11  [[Image(source:trunk/images/data/relation.png,middle,inline,link=)]] Relation:: A relation is an ordered sequence of ways and nodes, a logical container used to group elements. Only [https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/reports/database_statistics 1% of the data] is modeled using relations.
     12 [[JOSMImage(data/relation,middle,inline,link=)]] Relation:: A relation is an ordered sequence of ways and nodes, a logical container used to group elements. Only [https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/reports/database_statistics 1% of the data] is modeled using relations.
    1213
    13  [[Image(source:trunk/images/data/closedway.svg,middle,inline,link=)]] Area:: An area is a way whose ends are connected.
     14 [[JOSMImage(data/closedway,middle,inline,link=)]] Area:: An area is a way whose ends are connected.
    1415
    15  [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/propertiesdialog.svg,middle,16,inline,link=)]] Tag:: Tags describe what each node, way or relation represents. Tags are organized into "keys" and "values." Keys are basically larger categories, such as "Highway" or "Land Use," while values are specific features, such as "Primary Road" or "Residential Street," and "Residential" or "Retail" land use.
     16 [[JOSMImage(dialogs/propertiesdialog,middle,16,inline,link=)]] Tag:: Tags describe what each node, way or relation represents. Tags are pairs of key and value. Keys are basically larger categories, such as "Highway" or "Land Use," while values are specific features, such as "Primary Road" or "Residential Street," and "Residential" or "Retail" land use. For example `highway=residential` is pair of key `highway` and value `residential` and represents a residential street.
    1617
    1718If a road, track or path is curved, the curve is approximated using a number of nodes within a way, and short lines connecting them. If a way has a direction, that is indicated partly by using tags. For example, "oneway=yes" is a road that goes only in one direction. Other tags refer to being on the left and right of the direction of way along the way.

    1921== Launch JOSM ==
    20 JOSM is a Java program, can be run from the [wiki:Download#Recommendedoptions Download page].
     22JOSM is a Java program, can be obtained from the [wikitr:/Download#Recommendedoptions Download page] which contains download links and link to further help.
     23
     24If you don't know how to start it, ask someone familiar with your platform how to run a Java program or [https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Contact_channels other OSM mappers].

    2428=== Welcome screen ===
    25 
    2629When JOSM starts, it presents you with a few messages about recent changes in JOSM. You should have a look at this page from time to time as it keeps you informed on some of the more interesting changes.
    2730
    28 === Downloading ===
    29 
    30 The next step is to download some data. You can practice using JOSM by downloading your neighbourhood or locality you know or just recently visited.

    47 === Enable Aerial imagery ===
    48 
    49 For most places on earth there is at least one imagery available. You can pick one from the [Help/Menu/Imagery Imagery menu] at the top of the editor. Bing and Mapbox are popular, but there may be more recent resources for your locality. Note that all local imagery resources, which are available for the region you are currently working, are displayed in the lower part of the Imagery menu.

    5151Imageries may have different levels of detail and clarity in different places, so it is often worth checking different imageries. Simply select one of them from the imagery menu and you're ready to go.
    52 
    53 Mapbox-only: you can [https://www.mapbox.com/bites/00240/#3/0.00/0.00 request a better imagery for the region of your interest] ([https://www.mapbox.com/blog/new-imagery-for-openstreetmap/ announcement in 2014-04-11 by Eric Gundersen])

    5957=== Editing in JOSM ===
    60 
    6158JOSM is an offline editor which means everything you do won't be visible for anyone else until you upload it to the server. This makes it possible to experiment and repeatedly moving, tagging, adding and deleting elements without breaking anything. Subsequent actions on a single element will go into the database as a single modification when uploaded.
    6259
    6360=== Adding a Node or a Way ===
    64 The first step of actual editing is to [wiki:Help/Action/Draw add a node] or way to the OSM data. You can add standalone nodes or you can add nodes to ways, especially where there is a [Help/Action/Draw#Commonnodeswithanotherway junction between two ways].
     61The first step of actual editing is to [wikitr:/Help/Action/Draw add a node] or way to the OSM data. You can add standalone nodes or you can add nodes to ways, especially where there is a [wikitr:/Help/Action/Draw#Commonnodeswithanotherway junction between two ways].
    6562
    66 To add a node, activate "Draw Nodes" [wikitr:Help/EditToolbar#Workingmodes mode], ''either by clicking the [[Image(source:trunk/images/mapmode/node/autonode.png,20,middle,link=)]] button in the left menu bar, or by hitting the "A" key on the keyboard (the button should then be highlighted)''.
     63To add a node, activate "Draw Nodes" [wikitr:Help/EditToolbar#Workingmodes mode], ''either by clicking the [[JOSMImage(mapmode/node/autonode,20,middle,link=)]] button in the left menu bar, or by hitting the "A" key on the keyboard (the button should then be highlighted)''.
    6764
    6865Then move the mouse cursor over where you want the node, over a way or over your GPS track (if you uploaded one) and left click wherever you want to place the node. A red dot (a selected node) should appear and a rubber-line spans from that node to the mouse cursor. If you create subsequent nodes, the earlier nodes will be shown as yellow nodes.
     
    7067A series of joined nodes forms a way.
    7168
    72 === Adding Tags ===
    73 Ways or nodes on their own are not of much use unless they are ''[wiki:Help/Concepts/Object#Tags tagged]'' to say what they represent. The [osmwiki:Map_Features Map Features] page shows some popular tags, this page will never be complete about all tags.

    7471
    75 The first step in adding tags is to be sure the [wiki:Help/Dialog/TagsMembership Tags/Membership window] is open on the right hand side of JOSM. ''The [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/propertiesdialog.svg,20,middle,link=)]] button on the left should be highlighted. If it is not highlighted, click on it or hit `Alt+Shift+P`''.

''The [[JOSMImage(dialogs/propertiesdialog,20,middle,link=)]] button on the left should be highlighted. If it is not highlighted, click on it or hit `Alt+Shift+P`''.
    7673
    77 You will see three buttons: [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/add.png,20,middle,link=)]] '''Add''', [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/edit.png,20,middle,link=)]]'''Edit''' and [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/delete.svg,20,middle,link=)]]'''Delete'''.
     74You will see three buttons: [[JOSMImage(dialogs/add,20,middle,link=)]] **Add**, [[JOSMImage(dialogs/edit,20,middle,link=)]]**Edit** and [[JOSMImage(dialogs/delete,20,middle,link=)]]**Delete**.
    7875
    7976To edit the properties of a node or way (such as adding a tag) in the Tags/Membership window, the way or node must be selected.
    80 1. ''Enter [wiki:Help/Action/Select Select mode] by clicking on [[Image(source:trunk/images/mapmode/move/move.png,20,middle,link=)]] of the left-hand icons or by hitting the {{{S}}} key.''
    81 1. ''Highlight the way or point you wish to select. Click the [[Image(source:trunk/images/dialogs/add.png,20,middle,link=)]]'''Add''' button.''
    82 1. ''A [wiki:Help/Dialog/AddValue dialog box] will appear, and you will be asked to select a key and a value for each tag. Type in the key/value pair that represents the tag you are creating. For example, for the key you might type "amenity" and for the value "fountain" (without quotes).''
     771. ''Enter [wikitr:/Help/Action/Select Select mode] by clicking on [[JOSMImage(mapmode/move/move,20,middle,link=)]] of the left-hand icons or by hitting the `S` key.''
     781. ''Highlight the way or point you wish to select. Click the [[JOSMImage(dialogs/add,20,middle,link=)]]**Add** button.''
     791. ''A [wikitr:/Help/Dialog/AddValue dialog box] will appear, and you will be asked to select a key and a value for each tag. Type in the key/value pair that represents the tag you are creating. For example, for the key you might type "amenity" and for the value "fountain" (without quotes).''
    83801. ''Click OK. You have now tagged your way. You can add several tags to one object.
    8481''

    127125=== Results of your job ===
    128 
    129 * Your changes will appear at the [http://www.openstreetmap.org/#layers= "Standard" layer] probably within a few minutes.
     126* Your changes will appear at the [osmwww:#layers= "Standard" layer] probably within a few minutes.
    130127* Data in your routing software, maps and other services: will be updated per each service (from minutes to days, weeks and months)
    131128
    132129=== Tell your friends ===
    133 
    134130* Tell your friends how easy it is to update data and how your changes get displayed quickly. Truck drivers, couriers, photographers, bikers, journalists, fisherman and simply runners with GPS are always welcome in OSM.
    135131* Precise and actual information may affect how you make decisions in your life. The more people who are active in the project - the faster the data gets updated. And while [http://osmstats.neis-one.org/?item=countries&date= a few contributors] can be called as "active" at a given point in time. Every small change advances OSM to a complete and actual state.
     
    137133* OpenStreetMap is about the whole planet in the same way how your clock about the current time.
