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.

Further information on London aerials. Although I submitted a permalink, the area covered is, quite simply too big to permalink.

I have now identified the extent of the problem: it is the entire London administrative region! :shock:

More details are here, along with an image showing the problem aerials.

Dear Waze. I know it's not within your control and I don't imagine that being bought by Google gives us any more influence with them. But nearly every day now, I encounter areas that have been re-aligned to the new aerials. It's happening all over London - we even had a visiting L4 editor re-align a section of Major Highway near Heathrow airport! Please, if there is anything you can do - revert to old images; a warning pop-up; a transparent overlay warning; an automatic shift when zoomed in on the problem area - it would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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

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?

Map offsets in the editor

Postby MapSir » Tue May 13, 2014 1:50 pm

Hi All,

As you might know there's an ongoing issue with mis-aligned images in the editor that cause our maps to be in an offset compared to the aerial images in some places.

We're glad to say that together with Google we started fixing the offsets and replacing images where it's possible, following the examples that you sent us using the form.

In order for us to continue to identify these places that are mis-aligned and fix them, we keep collecting examples in the form so please send us the problematic areas:

https://docs.google.com/a/google.com/fo ... 0/viewform

Note that in some cases the images were aligned with GPS tracks but the roads still don't match and need to be fixed manually.

Thank you for the help!

Hi all,

We still don't have any update on the progress from the Google team.
As I understand some places were already fixed, I'll try to get more information
but don't worry we're still on it.

Thanks
