Hi Xiang,

why not? You can arbitrarily choose one model and map as a reference and 
overlay the rest over it. Phenix tools such as "Structure comparison" or 
lower level ones such as phenix.superpose_maps and phenix.superpose_pdbs 
should help here. Nat spent time on this so I hope he offers more advice 
on this once he sees this email.

If (and only if) nothing helps please feel free to get back to me and I 
may provide with a custom script to accomplish this task.
