Did you ever noticed these weird Google Earth Images. It's not an error, as you can read in the article, it's the 'logical result of the system'.
"the 3D model that formed the surface of the earth, and the mapping of
the aerial photography; they didn't match up. Depth cues in the aerial
photographs, like shadows and lighting, were not aligning with the depth
cues of the 3D model."
"They are the absolute logical result of the system. They are an edge
condition—an anomaly within the system, a nonstandard, an outlier, even,
but not an error."
