Oh well, it's a try.
This is true but it makes the user content of GE even more unreliable than it already is. I've seen pictures of places misplaced by 100s of kms.
As with the papers maps, in Mk at least you will be left wondering what to believe. The road up to Dades taken by coaches and merry motorhomers is an 'off road track' * but the Gorgelink route to Todra is a cushy metro/secondary! What are they on?
What a shame. They've approached me again a few months ago wanting 'Sahara content' to get T4A into northern Africa and I had it spelled out how very strrricht they are about publishing a route. It had to be verified by 2 independent assessors or smth. But maybe not for Google Earth.
* Correction: actually it's a top hierarchy orange 'National road' even after it turns to dirt over the Atlas. Similar colour to the brown 'track'. Pardon me.
