Hey,

Firstly I would like to say that SD is amazing.

When I overlay an approach plate over the map (e.g. EDDB Berlin ILS 07L), I notice that the plate does not overlay with the map accurately.

KLF (VOR) on the overlay is more north than where it actually is in real life. That means if I fly to KLF on the overlay, I am actually approx 5nm north of the actual VOR station. But the plate says I am over KLF and when I switch the overlay off, the map shows I am 5nm north.

I'm not sure if this is an error just for that particular plate but I have experienced it with other plates too.
Is there something I am missing?

This is the classical issue mentioned in the SOP for this forum - please report these errors directly to Skydemon support, not the forum.

The plate you mentioned is not to scale. Well, the main part of it is, but there's a clear line break in the track represented on the plate showing that the area with the shaded background is further out than it appears on the map. It's not ideal, but the plate does make it clear if you look at the track that that is what's happening.

As far as I can tell from the graticules surrounding the plate, it's georeferenced into our chart ok.

Very interesting, I looked at the plate mentioned and it appears to be ok to me too. What I wonder is whether there could be a way to mark the georef'ed part better, such as drawing a blue line on top, as others do?
