I started by mapping the town I live in (Seltjarnarnes, a suburb of the capital, Reykjavík), and completed that work (and a little more) over the past weekend.

> Second, the area I'm editing in JOSM looks distorted, as if I'm viewing it from an angle.  I'm guessing this is correct behaviour, and is a consequence of editing at such a northerly latitude.  It is still annoying as all turns and angles look wrong when editing, and in some locations, it can be confusing.  Is there any way for me to change this so that JOSM shows the data from directly above?
