Java OpenStreetMap Editor


JOSM is an editor for OpenStreetMap written in Java 1.5. The current version supports stand alone GPX tracks, GPX track data from the OSM database and existing nodes, line segments and metadata tags from the OSM database.


News is announced here.

Changeover to API 0.4 on Saturday 05 May 2007 - If you get Sunday's josm-latest.jar from the link below, you will not need not change your preferecnes file - API 0.4 is the default now. Note that you cannot read OSM files saved with old versions unless you manually change the <osm version="0.3"> into <osm version="0.4"> at the top of the file. Some issues with 0.4 remain, notably how to handle the new fields provided by the API and how to support reading 0.3 files; expect these to be dealt with shortly.
