       josm - Java OpenStreetMap Editor




       JOSM is an editor for OpenStreetMap written in Java 8.

       OpenStreetMap  is  a project aimed squarely at creating and providing free geographic data
       such as street maps to anyone who wants  them.  It  allows  you  to  view,  edit  and  use
       geographical  data in a collaborative way from anywhere on earth.  The project was started
       because most maps you think of as free actually have legal or  technical  restrictions  on
       their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.

       JOSM files are saved according to the XDG Base Directory Specification:


              User data


       If the directory $HOME/.josm exists, all files are stored there.


       The  following options can be set by using Java system properties (i.e. -Dkey=value passed
       to java, or specified inside JAVA_OPTS).

              Set the JOSM preferences directory.

              Set the JOSM user data directory.

              Specify an alternate Java environment.

              Specify Java options.  For example, to use a HTTP proxy server with  this  program,
              set       this       environment       variable       to       something       like
              JAVA_OPTS="-Dhttp.proxyHost=yourProxyURL" before starting josm.


       JOSM was originally designed and coded by Immanuel Scholz, and is now  maintained  by  the
       OpenStreetMap community.

       The current JOSM maintainer is Dirk Stöcker.  A lot of administration work is done by Paul
       Hartmann and Vincent Privat.
