Choosing your editor

  • iD Editor: is an online editor, it’s an interface that is very easy to handle, and is the best tool to start! There’s also no need to download it.
  • JOSM: is a JAVA application which has to be downloaded on your computer. It’s an editor which is a little bit harder to work with yet, once you get the hang of it, you can map even faster and with even better results. This is why we recommend that you move on to JOSM as soon as you can.
