Fun with maps: 7 peculiar US borders
from The Awl
From July 5, 2011:
Is Colorado a perfect rectangle? The borders are defined by strict latitude and longitude lines, so by all accounts it should be; but thanks to a surveyor error back in 1879, it isn't. The kink in the western side of America's Otherwise Squariest Landmass is just one example of the kind of cartographic aberrations that have made for oddball borders in today's United States.
