Accuracy of satellite imagery:
In areas of mountains, hills, hillsides, slopes, gullies, bridges or embankments, height differences are more likely to appear, because satellite imagery wasn't always taken at an accurate 90-degree angle. As a result, objects at the same height (ground level in a flat area) may be quite accurate, while objects that are higher or lower may be slightly out of place.
Use GPS tracks (uploaded by other contributors to OpenStreetMap) to find out if satellite images are aligned. Help us with new tracks of your local area by uploading GPS tracks, in the applications section we have several tools to capture tracks and upload them.
