The OpenStreetCam JOSM plugin helps the community to improve the map by displaying up to date street view images. Street view images are collected by the OpenStreetCam platform and are available also via the OpenStreetCam web application and map editor.

Having an extra source of free and open imagery ease the process of remote mapping and allows the users to reflect the reality also in the map. Street view images are helpful for editing map features that are not visible on satellite imagery like traffic signs, house numbers, bus stops, points of interests. In this talk we will present the plugin features and how to use it effectively for mapping.
