The Virginia Location Map clearly indicates the exact geographical situation of the state of Virginia on the map of U.S.
Because of a distinctive feature of the original charter of Virginia, its border with Washington, D.C. and Maryland does not stretch beyond the low-tide level of the southern coast of the Potomac River (different from several edges that divide a river in the central portion). The southern boundary is specified as 36°30' parallel north. However, surveyor mistake resulted in variations to the extent of three arc minutes.
The highest point of the State of Virginia is Mount Rogers, which is located at an elevation of 5,729 feet and the lowest point is Atlantic Ocean (altitude 0 feet).
Several rivers and lakes flow through the state. Potomac River, James River, Shenandoah River and Rappahannock River are some of the important rivers in Virginia.
John W. Flannagan Reservoir, John H. Kerr Reservoir, Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Pound Lake, Gathright Dam (Lake Moomaw), and Philpott Lake are some of the notable lakes and water bodies of the state.
