  • 2007-11-12: updated to use new Gpx datastructures of josm. Reenabled azimuth measurement, iff two nodes are selected
  • 2007-07-02: added support to import data from gps layer to measurement layer (as path)
  • 2007-07-02: compiled for java 5

In my java course at the university I had the chance to contribute to a java open source project of my choice. Therefore I implemented a small plugin for JOSM the java editor for OpenStreetMap. The plugin provides functionality to measure the length of segments/ways (by simply selecting them) or the draw a „path“ on a separate measurement layer and show the length of that. Additionally the angle is shown when a single segment is selected.

If you find this plugin useful and have any suggestions to improve it please give me a hint and I’ll see what I can do. Of cause you are welcome to directly provide patches.
