JOSM is a great GPLed Java tool that can download/upload data from
OpenStreetMap and various other sources including sat images. It works
great on Linux for viewing/editing tracks too.

Its GUI is not the best in class and could take some time to get used

There are other Linux tools like KDE Marble. Check out this list:
