Microsoft Streetside JOSM Plugin

The Microsoft JOSM Streetside ( Plugin enables the viewing of Microsoft Streetside 360 degree imagery in the JOSM editor. It is based on the implementation of the Mapillary plugin (

Once JOSM is started and the MicrosoftStreetside plugin is selected in the JOSM Preferences, available Streetside imagery can be display within the boundary of the downloaded JOSM area, by selecting Imagery -> Streetside, from the main menu. Once blue bubbles appear on the map signifying Streetside imagery, clicking on a bubble results in the 360 degree imagery being displayed in the 360 degree viewer, which can be undocked and enlarged to allow for better viewing.

Building from source

Checkout the JOSM source, compile it and checkout the plugin source (the last gradle command is optional, but contains code checking and unit test functionality - requires a Gradle installation):

svn co josm
cd josm/core
cd ../plugins
rm -rf MicrosoftStreetside
git clone MicrosoftStreetside
cd MicrosoftStreetside
ant clean
ant dist
gradle build

Now Restart JOSM and activate the MicrosoftStreeside plugin in your preferences. The MicrosoftStreetside menu items will appear in the JOSM main menu after JOSM is restarted.

Details about plugin development can be found in the JOSM wiki.


This plugin is based on the Mapilary and extended to display Streetside imagery.

Third party resources

The MicrosoftStreetside plugin used JavaFX to implement the Streetside 360 degree viewer JavaFX, which, while bundled in the Oracle Java SE 1.8, is not an official part of the Java SE 1.8 specification, and may not function properly with alternative JDKs (e.g. OpenJDK is not currently supported). JavaFX is licensed under the same terms as Java SE (

The plugin also makes use of the compact Resty libary for communicating with RESTful web services from Java ( Resty is licensed under the MIT license (
