There are Gimp plugins that will align two layers but only between two points. There is a plugin here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-tools/files/scripts/ ofn-layer-aligner about 30 down the list ofn- In the very-much simplified example: A four point path A-B-C-D defining the start and finish of intended and actual, scales and rotates to suit. Very much depends on the images, different map projection and camera angle and it might be easier to draw in by hand. A non-gimp solution might be Hugin which has a stack alignment option. Not easy to use and I have not had much success unless the images are very similar.
