I've identified a fairly large area of western Tennessee that is off by about 50-100 feet in places. Roads seem to line up with the GPS tracks well, but the aerial image is shifted to the west.

Hi All,

The Google team has already fixed a certain amount of offset issues.
The fixes that are applied are matching between the aerial imagery and the GPS points up to 10 meters offset, this means the segments might still be misaligned and need a manual fix to move them to the correct place.

I am posting here all the fixed issues, so feel free to request a share to the sheet. https://docs.google.com/a/google.com/sp ... .com#gid=0

Thanks

Yes the Google team is still working, when they send me more areas that were fixed I will put them in the sheet.

I don't really want to push, because I know it's Google's fault and not Waze . . . but the London aerials still haven't been touched.

They're out of alignment in Waze. In Google Maps. In Google Earth. We have weekly occurrences of editors re-aligning London roads to the wrong aerials.

All parts of Slovenian misaligned areas have been fixed by now. So there is hope for you once they move westwards :). If that helps..it is important not to add any new segments, as later on, they cannot be treated as a whole and moved to the right position. We were hoping for such solution, but had to redo them entirely.

The satellite pictures in the vicinity of Huanuco City, in Peru, habe been terribly offset for a while. They the coastline in a place far away from the ocean. See:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... 925&zoom=2

I hope this can be fixed.

Is there a way to know if aerial pictures are off or previous aerial pictures were off and roads were aligned to bad photo?
How to know if I should adjust roads or wait for aerial photo correction?

Turn on the "GPS Points" layer and see how well the GPS tracks match up with major roads running N/S and E/W.
