Exactly how precise are latitude/longitude measurements?


Will my house have a different lat/long "address" than a neighbor right next door or directly across the street?

    Holey smokes--then by that measurement scale, you could pinpoint a specific ROOM within someone's home or building!! Dang! Well, thank you--that settles the discussion with the neighbor....GPS puts you "within a few doors" of destination...

    Right--but first you have to KNOW the lat/long info to do that. Otherwise, you're stuck with just street address, which probably accounts for the "within a few doors" error. ;-)
