Useful Mapping Tips
  • Use the ‘F’ key in ID and JOSM to follow another line of nodes while mapping an area.
  • Use the spacebar to draw a line following your mouse in ID.
  • Use the ‘Shift+C’ key combo to merge lines or to merge an area into another area. If you draw a line inside an area you can combine them to create a hole in the polygon if you use proper inner and outer tags.

  • admin_level=7 for cities, 8 for towns, 9 for villages, 10 for hamlets, neighbourhoods, suburbs, etc.
