Java OpenStreetMap Editor is a strong yet almost user friendly program that aims to help you in editing parts of maps. It allows you to plan ahead for a trip, for example, and highlight locations you need to reach.
The software comes with a little cluttered user interface, proving a bit too much for new users; even experienced users may have a little trouble getting the hang of it, at first. However, the tooltips advise you of the role of every button, so you do not need to test them out separately.
The principal window of Java OpenStreetMap Editor shows your map, enabling you to customize it using the main and adjustable toolbars, while with your mouse, you can drag and drop details from the image to a new location.
To begin with, you will need to load the map that you aim to work on, from a locally stocked file, supporting XML, OSM, JOZ, GPX, WMS, NMEA, JPG, and other formats. Alternatively, you can download it from the web, automatically from OpenStreetMap, the latest option featuring a restricted surface area that you can grab, due to server restrictions.
The maps can be showcased using a variety of view modes, including "MapQuest Open Arial", "Bing Aerial Imagery", "Mapbox Satellite", "BANO", "OpenStreetMap (Mapnik)", "Cadastre" and several more.
