I am using sharp maps v0.9.

I have created a image overlay of the shape file of a country over google image. (1 single image is over laid on Google Maps)

The problem i'm facing is that the borders of the Shape file do not overlay perfectly with the Google Map.

Has anyone tried overlaying images on Google Maps? Could you please a remedy or an alternate approach to achieve over lay of shape files on Google Maps.

Thank You.

You need to reproject your data to the spherical mercator crs often called 'web mercator' as google and bing both use it.. hth jd
