[aprssig] FindU Maps Quirky

Steve, if you zoom in to street level on my FindU map, 

You'll notice that although I am actually located about 1 mile

>From the water, a significant amount of the streets in my neighborhood

Are depicted as being in Puget Sound, yeah, in the water!

 

I don't suppose there's much to be done about it, except FYI.

But it would be nice if most of the neighborhood wasn't "underwater".

Although I could stand an improvement in property values with a coastal

Lot. ;-)

 

Gee, looking at Seattle a little closer now, there seems to be thousands of
streets

Depicted as being in the drink.  Any hope of correcting this??

Does this link show what I'm talking about:

The geo-registration seems to be WAY off.
