Microsoft buildings footprint in JOSM?

I’ve been using, RapiD editor, and enabled the msBuildings vector layer. in rural areas it’s been quite nice, in thick built up urban areas much less.

my workflow has been first mapping with the RapiD editor, then open the same area with JOSM, and review and refine, like in this example, reviewed here.

the obvious question is can we use the msBuildings vector layer straight into JOSM? and which would be the correct workflow in this setup?

The answer to your question is on the Wiki FAQ:

7. Will you offer JOSM support?
Yes, we have a JOSM plugin!


to simplify the answer: start JOSM, open the Editing Preferences window, Plugins tab, then start typing ‘mapwithai’, before you’re done typing, you’ll see the plugin you want (or the -dev version).
