JOSM (Java OpenStreetMap Editor) is a desktop application originally developed by Immanuel Scholz and currently maintained by Dirk Stöcker. Its homepage is located at josm.openstreetmap.de.

Although it has a relatively steep learning curve, JOSM is popular among experienced editors thanks to its plugins and stability. There are other editors for OpenStreetMap data, like iD or Potlatch 2. JOSM is a feature-rich editor with an interface which can seem complex at first. Have a look at the comparison of editors if you're still unsure which editor to choose.

Install

You can download JOSM from the JOSM homepage.

The JOSM Help manual should provide more exhaustive in-depth explanations of each JOSM feature. It is intended to be used as a reference manual, rather than reading from end-to-end. It is also accessible by pressing F1 within the application (context sensitive help)
