Having problems with JOSM

Posted by ATMunn on 16 April 2017 in English (English)

For some reason, JOSM has decided to stop working. When I try to download the map from OGF, I get this popup.

popup

Does anyone know why this happens and how to fix it?

Thanks.

Edit: It works fine now after I made the area slightly smaller. See the replies for more info, if you're curious or having the same problem yourself.

I guess it's too big.

Try downloading a small area or try again.

Hi,

According to the coordinates above, it does look like you tried to download a huge area.

JOSM automatically rejects download requests in zoom level 11 (#map=11) and below.

Try zooming in to map 12 or above, then copy and paste the coordinates into JOSM. It should download fine.

If not, it could be an issue with your internet reception.

Hope this is helpful.

Hm, that's very odd. I believe I was able to download the exact same area before. I'll try it again with a smaller one though.

And yep, it did work. Odd, as like I said, I'm pretty sure I downloaded it before with no problems. Oh well.

This is happening to me rather often as well. I'm guessing we are once again hitting some kind of limit on the server at times. And no, it is not the size of the area necessarily.

It happens if you want to download a too large area.

Well, maybe two things could be:

1- You are trying to download a very large area

2-You are trying to download a "very big file". Not geographcally big, but with a lot of details. I can not download this area right now, but before, when there was only streets and no buildings, there was not any problem when downloading this area.

I get that it might be a "too large" area. It wasn't that big of an area, JOSM said it would be accepted, and previously the same area worked. My guess is it was what BMSOUZA was saying, where it used to have less actual data, and now it has more. Nonetheless, changing the area worked fine, like I said.
