This two-phase survey mapped out the boundary between Canada and the United States, specifically in the complicated lake country of northern Minnesota. It was conducted after a treaty in 1925 made some adjustments to those boundaries, including moving the "northwesternmost point" south so that it could avoid cutting through a number of small enclaves. The report for the boundary between the Gulf of Georgia and the Lake of the Woods is not included here.
