JOSM with some Pluggins


I've written some tools to analyse osm data.

python scripts to check relations and do some statistics:

  • Here are some results of the checks: [1], you can find most of the source code at [2]

I've put some generally useful tools to github: [3]

  • to export relations to gpx tracks
  • to download older versions of osm-objects
  • to parse multipolygons and do is-in-polygon checks

This repository contains a some other basic tools to work with osm data.

special OSM topics


From time to time I cleanup/improve the relations in OSM.

waterways and river systems

I've written the proposal of relation:waterway tagging. Currently I'm working on improving the mapping of rivers.
