Getting Started with the OpenStreetMap Geography Awareness Week!

Are you new to OpenStreetMap?

Making the most of OpenStreetMap with the iD editor

The iD editor is the de facto, browser-based OpenStreetMap editor. iD is fast and easy to use, and allows mapping from various data sources such as satellite and aerial imageries, GPS, Field Papers or Mapillary.

Advanced OpenStreetMap with the JOSM editor

More advanced users may want to migrate to the JOSM editor at some point for improved editing efficiency or specialized needs.
