Sadly Hazrat, the Earth is a globe not the flat map you've posted. I've checked various calculations and they all point to North East being the most precise way. Here is one of them: http://www.islam.com/salat/salat.asp states the following:

Prayer Times for : Riverside, California Dated : Saturday, August 26, 2006

Longitude : 117 24'W Latitude : 33 57'N

Sun's angle of depression at fajr : 18 Deg

Direction of Qiblah : Angle of Qibla from North at Riverside, California in Clockwise direction :24.74°

Fajr Sun Rise Dzuhr Asr Maghrib Ishaa

4:49 6:17 12:52 17:32 19:26 20:55

Just to correct you, and you can confirm this with your marja too if you don't believe me, it is North East from california. The reason being, and believe me I had a hard time getting my head round this too, but I have studied cartography at university, the map you have is known as a stephensen projection. The earth is a globe and any flat map distorts the proportions of the earth. Now in reality you can't travel in a straight line to reach a place, you travel in an arc around the earth, hence when an aeroplane flies from London to Canada it passes over greenland.
