Geo-Referenced Rasters

Hi, I’m new to JOSM and Open Street Map.

Is there any possibility or any plug-in to open the Geo-Referenced Rasters in JOSM, Pls guide me


Welcome to OSM!

I’m sorry, but I don’t understand your question. What do you mean by “Geo-Referenced Rasters”?


Geo-referencing means image registration, If you have Scanned map or a raster map which doesn’t include calibration data, you’ll need to create it yourself; this process is called “image registration” or geo-referencing. (Fixing of map co-ordinates to earth co-ordinates)


I just learned about this the other day, but you can upload your files (GeoTIFF in WGS 84 only) to, which will then give you a WMS link that you can use with JOSM’s wmsplugin. I just pick “Rectified Image” from the WMS menu and paste the WMS URL into the field there.

The other thread is

Naturally, if you’re tracing from the images, you need to make sure their licensing terms are compatible with OSM’s.

Ah, I see. I didn’t understand that “raster” meant “image”. Now of course it’s quite plain to me.
