ImproveOSM plugin – new features

The Telenav OSM team just released a new version of the ImproveOsm plugin.  We have added a location search box (helpful feature for reaching an area to be mapped) and a button for downloading previously selected ways.

Location search box

A new feature we added to the ImproveOSM plugin is the location search box.  It enables the user to visualize the desired geographical point at a higher zoom level after entering its coordinates in the text field.                     The input of the search box should contain the values for latitude and longitude separated by a comma. If the plugin doesn’t understand your input, an intuitive message is displayed in order to help you. This works similar to the JOSM Jump to position but the search box brings advantages such as the single field for data collecting and more validations for the latitude-longitude values.



Download way button

Another feature is the download way button for the Traffic Flow Direction layer. This enables the user to download the ways of the selected road segments in a new Data layer. This option is only available if the Traffic Flow Detection Layer is active. Furthermore, the button becomes enabled when one or more road segments are selected.
