This graticule is located at 42,-79 and is split between Ontario, Canada and New York, USA. It is significantly covered by Lake Erie and also includes Chautauqua Lake. Another interesting water landmark is the Lake Erie Terminus of the Welland Canal in Ontario, Canada which bypasses Niagara Falls for ships traversing the Great Lakes.
