For a while I did it every day. My job is a few blocks inside Missouri. The Quik Trip down the hill used to be half in Kansas, half in Missouri (rebuilt fully in Missouri last year).

Any of the mapping/staellite sites of the monument makes it apparent that some liberties are taken with manipulating the state lines to line up on top of the monument.

It's an outrage I tell you!

Note also the big angular jog in the CO/UT border just north of the Four Corners. The Mapquest map does not show that jog, and it also shows the four state lines meeting much closer to the center of the momument, in fact within a few feet of it. Zooming in on the Google Pedometer map and measuring the distance the center of the monument appears to be about 100 feet southeast of the spot where the intersecting state lines are drawn in.

Does anybody know the criteria that Google and/or Mapquest use in drawing in boundaries? How accurate are they in other places?

Google maps shows the state line in my city as going right down the middle of the street I posted up thread, so here at least it's very accurate.
