Hi guys,

We are working on a project to significantly enhance the situation of this kind of places, although this might take some time.

No ETA on this, sorry, but we will keep you updated on any progress we make.

Thank you for your patience!

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.

Looks like they need to do some more work on the NA side of things. I put in a few requests (a large swath of SW Tennessee, actually) that is offset 6 months ago and it still appears to be untouched.

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:

I hope this can be fixed.

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


Great news!!!! Thanks

If at least an automated warning could appear always whenever an area is being displayed in WME, which gets identified and marked by other experienced local editors as having shifted aerials.

Ideally, these editors would off course be capable to specify the appropriate values for automated shifting... or does it sound like a fiction?

Any news on how fast this issue is being fixed? There are still many places in Ecuador where the map remains shifted compared to the GPS tracks...
