iD是一个用JavaScript (无需插件,可直接在浏览器中使用)编写的OpenStreetMap编辑器,以对使用者简洁及友善为设计目标。iD是openstreetmap.org首页中的默认编辑器。


You can use iD with your web browser live on the OpenStreetMap.org home page. Simply zoom in on the area you are interested in and click the "edit" button!

注意:在您的用户首选项中,您可以设置“编辑”按钮以启动不同的编辑器。 In that case you still can find "iD" inside the "Edit ▼" menu drop-down. By default, though, new users would click simply "edit".

To help you learn iD, there is an interactive walkthrough inside the editor. You will see a prompt on the start-up screen, and it is always accessible via the help icon on the right-hand side (keyboard shortcut is H). You also can browse the collection of questions related to iD on help.osm.org. If your question has not been asked already, just add it. A list of keyboard shortcuts is available, too.

A more detailed tutorial for iD can be found at the LearnOSM web site.


iD uses d3js as a rendering layer and has a fast, modular core that manages OSM data. The primary mode of rendering is via SVG, though other renderers will be considered in the future.

Contributions are very warmly welcomed. Currently User:tyr, User:bhousel and others are contributing.



iD uses transifex for translations https://www.transifex.com/openstreetmap/id-editor/ more information on GitHub.


Its development began in summer 2012 and it is available for use on the openstreetmap.org homepage since May 2013. In August 2013 it replaced Potlatch 2 as the default editor[1].


On July 13, 2012 Richard Fairhurst published a blog post where he announced he was working on a new JavaScript based OpenStreetMap editor. By the time he was already famous within the OSM community for his web editors Potlatch and Potlatch2 written in Flash, and as it was clear that there was no future for Flash based applications, iD was the consequential next step.

Some months later on September 20, Mapbox announced they had been granted 575,000 USD from Knight Foundation to improve the core infrastructure of OpenStreetMap, and that they were planning to use it for the development of the iD editor. The first alpha version was released on December 21, 2012 and the beta version on April 2, 2013. This initial development was primarily done at Mapbox by Tom MacWright, John Firebaugh, Saman Bemel-Benrud and Ansis Brammanis.

Version 1 onward

On May 9, 2013 version 1.0 was released.

Bryan Housel maintained the project until 2020. Quincy Morgan was the appointed iD maintainer until Apr. 26th, 2021. Milos Brzakovic was the interim maintainer from then until the appointment of Martin Raifer (known also as tyr_asd or tyrasd) in November 2021.[2]


Since software version 2.14 (Feb. 2019) there is an implemented integrated Issue manager and advanced validation system available.


主条目:iD/Controversial Decisions

Some decisions by the maintainers were appearing controversial or were lacking support by the community. In June 2020, the OSMF board asked for comments on potential approaches to resolving controversies.[3][4][5]
