Hi, A simple question I guess : how to find a way given its id? For example, I would like to know (may be to see on the map?) the way whose id is "way id = 4639304". This could be done with Potlatch2, or JOSM either? Thanks.

Then use the Edit button to select the editor of your choice.

To find out details about the way, you could also use

For JOSM, select File / "Download Object" / way, and enter they way ID.
