GitHub Move

Esri has an initiative to release more products and samples as Open Source software. In this initiative, Esri teams working on open source projects are encouraged to make their code available on GitHub, so users can find all Esri open source projects in one place. This project has also been moved to GitHub; all development from the 10.1 release and forward - including patches and updates - will be distributed there at This page on codeplex will still be available in the near-term as users learn about the move.

OSM Node IDs exceed 32 bit limit - You may need to install an update

If you are using ArcGIS Editor for OSM version 2.0 - compatible with ArcGIS 10.0 - then you may notice errors when working with any changesets posted to OSM after February 9. On February 9, the count for OSM node IDs exceeded the 32 bit character limit. The ArcGIS Editor for OSM tools released with version 2.1 included adjustments to support 64 bit node IDs, but the release was compatible with only ArcGIS 10.1. We've recently posted a release candidate for ArcGIS 10.0 users that includes 64 bit node ID support for the ArcGIS 10.0 OSM tools - see

ArcGIS Editor for OSM version 2.1 is Final

We are very exccited about this release. This version comes with ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server components, and also a setup for ArcGIS Desktop with the 64 bit Background Geoprocessing if that's what you've got. Check out the What's New topic for details - but some things you can look forward to are compatibility with the 10.1 environment, the new Create OSM Network functionality, and some performance improvements. See Documentation to get started with the ArcGIS Editor for OSM.

And we're already thinking about what's next after 2.1 - see What's Next for what will be coming along in 2013.

Project Description

The ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap is designed to help ArcGIS users to become active members in the growing community of users building an open and freely available database of geographic data.
The ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap allows you to use ArcGIS tools for working with OpenStreetMap data. You can install tools for ArcGIS Desktop, or a Feature Service component that leverages ArcGIS Server. The Desktop tools allow you to download data from the OpenStreetMap servers and store it locally in a geodatabase. You can then use the familiar editing environment of ArcGIS Desktop to create, modify, do network analysis, or delete data. Once you are done editing, you can post back the edit changes to OSM to make them available to all OSM users. The Server Component allows you to quickly create ArcGIS Server feature services based on OSM data for consuming and editing in a variety of map viewers.

This site provides access to the released versions of the ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap (OSMEditor), the source code, as well as documentation and the issue tracker.

ArcGIS Desktop for Home Use Program

Through the ArcGIS for Home Use Program you can get ArcGIS Desktop, install the ArcGIS Editor for OpenStreetMap extension (free), and then use the powerful ArcGIS editing environment to download and use OSM data, and contribute data back to OSM.
