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".

Hi,

There was, if I remember, somewhere you could report misaligned aerial imagery, whether misaligned to neighbouring images or whether in the wrong position.
Need that in the wiki as I can't see it there either.

Des. . . ;)

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 :)

It's a hell of a lot of London!

HQ have just posted about working to fix misaligned aerials here.

I have just reported this area, which basically as much of London as I can fit on my screen in one permalink. Aerials are offset 10m to the south across this entire area and probably further.

Thanks to Google Earth and the historical imagery controls, I have managed to identify the extent of the misaligned Google aerials for London. This is not a pretty sight. :evil:

I'm guessing that there is a larger set of aerial images, from which Google has purchased everything within the London "county" borders (that's the pale green line you can see in the image). According to the history tool, these images were taken in July 2013.

Obviously this was done to provide more up-to-date and better images for London. Unfortunately they've really shot themselves in the foot. These images are misaligned for Google Earth and Google Maps - we're just collateral damage.

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.
