source:/trunk/images/logo.png

JOSM is an editor for OpenStreetMap (OSM) written in Java 1.5. Currently it supports loading stand alone GPX tracks and GPX track data from the OSM database as well as loading and editing existing nodes, ways, metadata tags and relations from the OSM database.

Download

  • Note that there are fairly regular updates, so always try running a recent version (and also recent plugins).
  • Access JOSM-WebStart without installation
  • Download the tested JOSM version 17428 (more or less stable)

Development

  • Download the latest JOSM version 17548 (may have more errors than "tested", be careful with this one)
  • View the change log. Major changes are noted in the JOSM startup notes.
  • Help translating JOSM into your language using Launchpad.
  • Get the source from svn co http://josm.openstreetmap.de/svn/trunk

Help and Support

  • Requests for new features can also be made via trac or via the JOSM developer mailing list (josm-dev@…). You can subscribe here.
