How accurate is inputting the latitude and longitude from a survey pin into google maps to look at the site location?
The problem I am trying to understand is I am about to purchase a property in Palawan / Philippines. The beachfront 2 hectare site was surveyed, by chance I tried to put the Latitude and Longitude from pin 1 into Google Maps to see where it would show the location. Much to my confusion it shows the pin to be 900 metres south of the site I visited and was shown by the owner.
I am from Adelaide Australia, took my info to a surveyor here in Adelaide and he plotted the site and came to the same conclusion. He did suggest a surveyor from the Philippines check this, which I am in the process of doing. As I look at other properties on the same island my simple question is if I put the lat and long from a sketch survey into Google should it be reasonably close?
latitude 10.836883 N longitude 119.244194 E
