It supports loading GPX tracks, background imagery and OSM data from local sources as well as from online sources and allows to edit the OSM data (nodes, ways, and relations) and their metadata tags.

JOSM is open source and licensed under GPL.

This site

  • This site is a combined online help and bug tracking system for JOSM and JOSM plugins.
  • No login is required to use this site (neither for reading nor for changes to wiki or bug tracker).
  • A login has the following advantages:
    • Mail is sent for changes in your own bug tracker tickets. This is possible by entering an e-mail as a username in the tickets too, but then be aware that the address is openly visible and you are unable to change that later.
    • Page settings are remembered (e.g. input field size and a lot of other stuff).
  • Logins which have no e-mail address or which have not been used at least once are automatically deleted.
  • Logins to edit the OpenStreetMap database are separate from the logins on this server.
  • Copyright (CC-BY-SA and LGPL since April 2014) of this site is stated in the footer.
