josm - Java OpenStreetMap Editor
josm is an editor for OpenStreetMap written in Java 1.5.
OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing
free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them. It
allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative
way from anywhere on earth. The project was started because most maps
you think of as free actually have legal or technical restrictions on
their use, holding back people from using them in creative, productive
or unexpected ways.
