Editing OpenStreetMap with Potlatch 2
If you need a tool to make minor modifications in OpenStreetMap, Potlatch 2 is a useful choice as a fast and easy-to-use editor.
Potlatch 2 (or “P2” for short) is a small editor for OpenStreetMap. When you view an area on OpenStreetMap and notice that certain paths or points of interest (POIs) are missing, you don’t necessarily have to launch a major league editor like Merkaator or JOSM. Instead, you can make changes directly in the map via the Edit function (Figure 1).
What you do need to change the maps is an account with OpenStreet-Map. This is quickly done and doesn’t require more than an email address. After you launch the editor, it comes up with a brief introduction (Figure 2).
