The JOSM WalkingPapers Plugin allows the JOSM editor to bring in images from Walking Papers

What is Walking Papers?

Walking Papers is a web service that lets you select a map area from OpenStreetMap and creates a print-ready PDF for that area. You can then walk around and scribble notes on the paper. Later, you scan the paper and upload it to the Walking Papers server which makes the scan available as georeferenced map tiles.

For more information, see http://www.walking-papers.org/. However....

It should be noted that Walking Papers has been largely superseded by a new system called Field Papers which has a corresponding JOSM/Plugins/FieldPapers


The Plugin

The JOSM plugin is loosely based on the SlippyMap plugin. After entering the identifier for a scanned Walking Papers map, it zooms to the right place and loads the Walking Papers tiles in the background.

How can I install the plugin?

Simply go to the Edit/Preferences menu, refresh the plugin list, and select the "walkingpapers" option. You will have to restart JOSM afterwards.
