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.

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

Is this process working?

We're still waiting for London to be corrected... :/

Hi,

We have to understand than small offset is normal to happen, we are converting a spherical earth to flat one. Even worst, it is not a perfect sphere.

Of course, in some case could be for misalining semengs. But, also for map use while driving, it will not affected, The app will try to lock you to the route, fixing any small offset. (30 mts is normal to be managed for it)

More importan is for editing the map, is quit difficult edit, modify or adding segment if the exiting ones are moved.

Regards,
roencaco

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!
