Anyone can contribute to OpenStreetMap, help a good cause, and building a geographic database of the world that can be (almost) instantly accessed by anyone, because OpenStreetMap is free and open for all. As time is one of the most important resources for most of us, for challenge becomes finding the time to edit OSM and making the most of your mapping time.
Since its launch in 2004, contributors have created dedicated tools to address this exact issue – make editing easy and make editing efficient (less time, more edits).
Between those different tools, JOSM is the number one OSM editor based on the number of active editors and the second editor when it comes to the number of change-sets. And it so happens to be our “go to” editor during our OSMTime events :).
With the idea of being more efficient in JOSM, our colleague Florin, an addicted JOSM user, created a very useful and nice transposition of the JSOM shortcuts for window keyboard:
You can continue to improve this cheatsheet by adding your favourite shortcuts.
Hint: the JOSM wiki page: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Basic_editing is a good source of inspiration.
…and remember mapping is fun!
