Greeting awesome OSM,
Note #1558 mentioned that border of Egypt-Sudan was too winding/wobbly..I’ve checked it and he seems right refereeing to Official UN Africa map and Egypt govern provided map the border should be a straight line…here is the note: ((please pay attention that I’m not talking about Halaib/Shalatin problem here I’m talking about the line of the border itself should be straight not that wobbling)). http://www.openstreetmap.org/note/1558
and here is the UN Africa Cartographic Africa Map: https://www.un.org/Depts/Cartographic/map/profile/africa.pdf

Finally to summarize…The border line should be just above 22°N latitude as shown here clearly: http://www.mapsofworld.com/egypt/
The idea is that I can’t edit the map as ID editor doesn’t help too much in very long lines,I’m asking help for JOSM experts to edit the border and match it with 22°N latitude and clear that border wobbling.
thanks in advance..
