Google Maps in Hong Kong inaccurate ?

Discussion created by Tobias_Balmer on Feb 16, 2014
Hi

I received 8 png. files with 8 cities all over the world. The Data come from Google maps and are all in the WGS_1998_Web_Mercator Projection with the D_WGS_1984_Major_Auxiliary_Sphere Datum. 7 files fit accurate with the basemap. Only the Hong Kong file is slightly shifted. Does anyone know where the fault is? I noticed that on Google maps itself, there is a inaccuracy around Hong Kong when I switch between the satellite image and the map. Do I do something wrong? or is data from google map itself imprecise?
Thank you for the help.

I attached a Screenshot that you can see the shift.
