5/10 meters fall in the typical error of the GPS system. I'm pretty
confident that if you repeat your tracking several times, you will have a
beam of not linear ways or a "spot" of nodes localtions.
To be precise we do need several measurements. The truth is in the average.
Although I have no idea on the calibration methods of the Yahoo maps, surely
they will also have an error.
