I think I’ve found the real world location of the EDZ patrol area

I don’t know if this has been discussed or figured out already, I assumed it has, but if not then this might interest someone. So after spending some time in the game and on Google Maps comparing landmarks, I believe the EDZ patrol area is based around Geneva, Switzerland. Obviously we have to take into account that a) its a video game and the scale will be a lot smaller than the real world, and b) the game is based 700 years into the future. The landmarks I compared are based around Lake Geneva (Lac Lehman). 1) Chillon Castle. If standing at Winding Cove and looking across the lake, we see the remains of what appears to a very old structure that resembles the back of Chillon Castle that’s at the opposite end of the lake from Geneva. Game: Real World: 2) Cathedrale Saint-Pierre Geneve. Although a larger structure in the real world than in the game, the rounded end, tower and structural design inside are very similar to the in game cathedral. There are also round windows that appear VERY similar in design and color to the game. Game 1: Game 2: Game 3: Real world: Real World: Real World: 3) The reservoir. While the reservoir in game is huge, there is a a small dam/reservoir type area further into the city that could in theory grow into the massive reservoir we see in the game after the course of 700 years. 4) The Salt Mines. Although we see the entrance to the salt mines as being directly behind the cathedral in game, this could be attributed to game scale or continued mining hundreds of years into the future. There are salt mines not far from Geneva in Bex. 5) The Alps. In the game a snow capped mountain range can be seen in the distance that could easily be the Swiss Alps. Game 1: Game 2: Here is an image from Google Maps of the real world area: Let me know what you guys think. Am I onto something? Or am I dead wrong? EDIT: A lot of people are bringing it up so here’s a shot of the “Graubünden” road sign that’s in the water at winding cove:
