I often find that a track following a shoreline road appears where 
the Landsat images show water, an offset of maybe 30-50 meters in 
some direction, which is more than the GPS error should be.  I 
assume this is an error in the Landsat images.  Does anybody 
understand where this comes from?  Is it systematic?
