Early next week, we’re going to tag the first beta release of the iD editor for OpenStreetMap, one of the main products of our Knight Foundation grant work for open data. Here’s a sneak peek of what the improved interface offers and how it has radically simplified editing tasks in its alpha3 release.

iD is an open source project on GitHub which we’ve documented and journaled during its development. You can try it out today, and we’ll be working on documentation, translation, and much more in the coming months.
