These two boundaries mention a source but provide no link. I presume
these are the boundaries that drew Sam's attention.
These boundaries are more specific about their source and include a link.
The Russian boundary relation includes lines that extend beyond the
northern map boundary
Many other national boundaries appear to be based on a fixed distance
from land. Perhaps the 200nm eez?
The Canadian boundary relation
The Norwegian boundary relation
By comparison, Greenland has no boundary relation currently.
