Hi everyone,

I've made some more quick comparisons here:
https://www.evernote.com/l/AAToqyEvUURAL71Q_xhbOB05s9mj-cH4Gg4

Counterintuitively, the ones with circle in green are the original with 
google maps background, in red is super imposed on OSM, you can see that 
it fits like a glove.

Best regards
Mishari
