[Talk-GB] British National Grid coordinates in JOSM

I imagine so. When working in PostGIS, coordinates are Lon/Lat so that it maps into an (x,y) format. Since JOSM  displays Lat/Lon this rather sounds like the reverse in order to preserve the presentation format.

Agree it's confusing though.

Although thanks for the tip - will now go and set mine likewise

I have got round to resetting the map projection in JOSM to EPSG:27700 (OSGB 1936 / British National Grid), finally.  I am surprised to find northings before eastings in the bottom left-hand corner of JOSM, when we reference BNG positions eastings before northings.  I wonder if this has something to do with the way latitude is referenced before longitude, usually?  I doubt this can be changed in JOSM but wondered what others know?  It is rather confusing.
