The NPE layers are coming up nicely and are more use than the satellite images 
round here, but as I move in and out on scale, they move a couple of road 
widths around the real tracks. I can work with it as I can see the offset, but 
it's a little annoying when one zooms in and after reloading the map the the 
roads jump around :(
