merkaartor Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies merkaartor-0.19.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).


An opensource OSM editor, written in C++ and Qt.

The Windows installer and Mac OS X bundle is available on the website:


You can clone this repository to obtain the current development version, or checkout a specific release (all of them are tagged). Detailed instructions can be found in the file in this directory.

Nightly builds

For Windows and Mac OS X, nightly builds are automatically generated using Travis-CI, uploaded to cloudsmith:

There are currently no nightlies for Linux. It's usually easy to compile from source, and the vast amount of distributions doesn't make it easy. I'm considering making Ubuntu PPA. Let us know if you're interested!

Hacking the code

I'm always happy to see improvements done by other people. Feel free to contribute by sending pull requests for big or small stuff! There is some (very little, but it'll grow) useful stuff in, but if you have questions, contacts us on to have them answered!

Thank you!
