Google Offset

This page demonstraits the offset between Google's satellite images and road maps. I have taken GPS waypoints in the centre1) of each road, and made each into a marker. As you can see, the road maps are accurate, but the satellite images are displaced in both coordinate directions.

Yes, I was careful and looked both ways.
