    Google Earth coordinates

    Dear Friends. You know what difference or coordinate error (distance) the Google Earth has with reference to the real point. In other words, what verified equivalence does Google Earth give? All information is welcome. VV

    There was a study done on this back a few years ago.
    Here is the link to the study: http://www.ijmse.org/Volume4/Issue6/paper2.pdf
    Be sure to look at page 3 where they show in tables how much GE differs from the actual.
    Also see page 3 for the conclusions.
    Hope that helps

    I've noticed If you look for a house for sale on Google Earth/maps 9 times out of 10 the location in incorrect (by a small amount). I'm thinking its for protection/privacy.They get the road correct,but not the actual house.

    Youre confusing two things. GE is a satellite image with GPS coords. The addressing system of a town is NOWHERE close to being based off GPS coords. If you look at address numbers from parallel roads, the numbering wont even match up there. Just ask any first responder how much house numbers can vary.

    I have been using GPS plot points in GE for years now and its good enough to get you within a few feet. Any good commercial GPS unit can reliably get you back within a few feet of the same point day after day, and its position on a GE image will have the same general amount of error.

    I have always used "Zoom Earth", and I have always been happy with the results.
