Certainly seems to have happened in the last 12-14 hours, as I was working on some URs over in west London at around 10-11pm last night and also had to use the script to align the aerials with reality.

I've been randomly panning around different bits of London, and as of about 10 minutes ago it seems as if pretty much everything I'm looking at has the correct offset. There might be the odd tiny patch here and there (e.g. the infamous Westminster Bridge - though *only* the bridge, the approach roads look OK now) where things are off, but it does appear that the update has the intention of fixing the offset across the whole of the affected area.

What I have noticed is that the few patches of misaligment I've noticed today all seem to correspond with bridges, which makes me think these are georectification artifacts rather than areas which haven't yet been through the correction process at all.

That's right on the boundary of Greater London. If you zoom out a bit, you can see the yellow line, and the subtle change in shading of the aerials imagery which don't match. You'll have to be careful of the alignment just outside the yellow boundary.

Google have refused to correct this issue, saying "10 meters offset is considered normal" and they won't fix the area. So once again we have to come up with our own solution.

Introducing the WME Aerial Auto Shifter for Greater London!

Any editor who frequently or occasionally edits anywhere near London should have this installed!

It looks like Google's solution was to increase the transparency of the mapped roads so they are not so apparent when zoomed in close enough to see the actual right of way.

Just realised its actually a lot of London, just hope no-one with OCD and no experience logs on to WME or there will be a meltdown of the London maps :)

London Aerials

Postby Superfraggle » Sun Apr 27, 2014 4:31 pm

looks like some of south east london has got some new aerials but google forgot to stitch them in the right place.

Now the OCD in me is going crazy. Aerial shifter is helping, but thought I would mention before someone comes along and edits all the roads to move them back in line.

[EDIT] - for the reference of editors directed to this topic.
You will need the WME Aerial Shifter script and use a vertical offset of -10 if editing in London.

This script will shift the aerials automatically whenever you're in "London".

What adjustments are people generally use with Aerial Shifter?

GPS tracks nearly always give me the best alignment with -10 vertical and +1 horizontal for the areas I'm editing. Generally this is inside M25 - West, North-West and North London.
