Thanks for the JOSM tip - I have now added this mapproxy service on the JOMS page.

We should also add this to the editor-imagery-index, I guess…

I have no idea how to add imagery DK for the GitHub (iD editor) XML file. I have incl. it for JOSM -

So if some one can figure out how to incl. this it would be lovely - BTW watch out it's different URL syntax for different editors.

Best regards Soren Johannessen
