I found a geocache at N 35° 57.280' W 082° 33.679' and Project-GC which uses openstreet to determine a location is saying this is in North Carolina, but when I put in the coordinates in openstreet, it is showing online that it is in TN. Other applications also say it's in TN. Can you tell me which state you believe these coordinates are in. Thanks - Kelly

CuriousKDB, Your question on Project-GC Q&A has been answered by pinkunicorn: This is a rather common question (although for various caches). Here is one answer: https://project-gc.com/qa/?qa=18883/project-gc2018-tristate-marker-indiana-geocaching-michigan&show=18883#q18883

Your question was: GCNPHD in TN - Project-GC records it in NC - can this be fixed?

pardon, what is your question?

As per the follow-up on your question here, they don't use OSM data in the US, and instead use TIGER data. The location is close enough to the boundary that a slight difference in the boundary can put it in the other state.
