JOSM: Bing StreetSide with Utilsplugin2 => Open custom URL
Bing StreetSide is alternative to Google Street View which can be used for OpenStreetMap mapping. There is a MicrosoftStreetside plugin for JOSM but it doesn’t work for me due to dependencies of JavaFX/360 views.
I have managed to use it via Utilsplugin2.
- Edit => Preferences (F12) => Utilsplugin2 settings
- Add new row with name
Bing StreetSideand url
In the case of issues one can edit customurl.txt. For Linux/Flatpak it’s located at
Bing StreetSidein Data => Select custom URL
- Now you can see Bing StreetSide via Data => Open custom URL (Shift+H)
If StreetSide is available at given location it will be displayed. Otherwise map is shown with streets colored blue where it’s available.
