International Boundary Line, Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls US/Canada

I made this “brilliant essay” about the US/Canada flag positions on Rainbow Bridge, Niagara Falls.

What does it have to do with OpenStreetMaps?

Well it turns out OpenStreetMaps’ version of the US/Canada boundary is different than that of the International Boundary Commission’s.

Sure hope somebody here will fix it one day, updating OpenStreetMaps’ version with that of the Commission’s.

It’s a series of “turning points” in a river. Sorry about Ground Truth. You’ll just have to trust them.

But if you can’t trust them, who can you trust?

Location: Chippawa, Niagara Falls, Niagara Region, Golden Horseshoe, Ontario, L2G 6B2, Canada
