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.

JOSM Training resources

learnOSM.org has many JOSM detailed editing resources in many languages.

Mapbox launched Mapping with OpenStreetMap Mapping guides. The guides offer comprehensive training with JOSM including how to become a power mapper and validating OpenStreetMap.

We also found this JOSM Basic Manual pdf on the web, it would be good for a print out.

Additional JOSM tips:

Activate Remote Control. Make sure Remote Control is turned on (this allows the HOT Task Manager to send data directly to your JOSM session): go to Edit⇨Preferences; on the left click on the Remote Control icon (third from bottom), put a check in the box “Enable remote control”, click OK.
