Where, due to the scale, lack of detail or illegibility of the Zoning Map, there is an uncertainty, contradiction or conflict as to the intended location of any district boundary, as shown thereon, an interpretation concerning the exact location of the district boundary line shall be determined by the Board of Zoning Appeals. The Board, in arriving at a decision on these matters, shall apply the following standards:
(a) District boundary lines are intended to follow centerlines of alleys, streets, rights of way, watercourses or lot lines, or be parallel or perpendicular thereto, unless such district boundary lines are otherwise obviously indicated as shown on the Zoning Map.
(b) Where district boundaries are so indicated that they approximately follow lot lines, such lot lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
(c) In unsubdivided property, or where a district boundary divides a lot, the location of any such boundary, unless the same is indicated by dimensions shown on the Zoning Map, shall be determined by the use of the map scale shown thereon.
(d) If, after the application of the foregoing rules, uncertainty exists as to the exact location of a district boundary, the Board shall determine and fix the location of such line in a reasonable manner.
