Re: Google earth accuracy
Today at work my task was to map various waypoints pertinant to our line of work. I GPS'ed about 50 with no problem. I had 5 spots that I could not access due to weather and a large body of water(our bay). I thought, how bout Google Earth. Fired it up, zoomed in on my 5 targets(which are very visable from the sat), jotted down the long and lat for each site. Cool, finished. Drove out to the area to check it out, each of the 5 waypoints from Google earth missed by up to a quarter mile or so. So bad that I could actually drive to one of the sites that is 300+ feet out in the water. Kinda makes you wonder.
