great job, thanks to Ian for the fast response.
I really like the fast loading speed of the tiles compared to WMS
solutions. In contrast to the WMS I miss the possibility to correctly
align the aerial images.
Our data in OSM is comparable to the tracks on Bing, both match the GPS
tracks. But the image is shifted south-west.
So in the current state I hope not too many will use it as all data
derived will have this offset.
I did not check the source code, but would I assume the position of the
tiles is calculated. So adding an offset sounds not too difficult to
I did hear work is ongoing for a more sophisticated solution, but can we
have a quick'n'dirty intermediate solution?
