Fun with image overlay: Google map

Here is another example on image overlay. This time, the image from Google map is used as reference image.
The image overlay is perfect! The secret is that the projection has to be matched. Google map currently uses Mercator projection.

CountryData["World", {"FullPolygon", "Mercator"}]
will produce the map with Mercator projection.
