Writeacher, I just want my answer to be clarified.

So the original idea of boundaries was to separate the land among the territories and provinces...???
And make locations on maps seem easier?

--I still feel like I'm missing out on some things, but I don't know what other information to add. Could you please help me? I looked through sites as well.

Problems that have occured because of this?

-Conflicts occured between individuals, since they did not think the boundaries, placed were correct, and some early explorers had difficulties recognizing the lines of boundary they each kept getting lost. The 49th parallel of latitude that set the boundary between British and American territory in the West--cut through plains and mountains. The people who had been used to crossing a natural area were now hemmed in by lines on a map. The natives had no right to draw in these lines on the maps themselved. Also, the Aboriginals had no authority in claiming the control of their traditional territories.
