Why Does Google Earth Provide Incorrect Longitude & Latitude Information?

Using Google Earth, I have found it provides Incorrect Longitude & Latitude information, wereas Google Maps provides the correct Longitude & Latitude information? Anyone know why? I suspect it's because you need to buy a licensed version of Google Earth to get the right Longitude & Latitude information output. Just wondering if anyone knows? Thanks!

    Thanks for the explantion. That is interesting that different GPS programs are using different units of measurement that are incompatible. But the difference I am seeing between Google Earth and Maps locations is miles and miles. Seems on purpose.
