How Far From Brownfield to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Brownfield to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that begins in Brownfield. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Brownfield) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Brownfield. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Brownfield

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Brownfield. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 52.3167, Longitude: -111.4333     [Map].

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Brownfield to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 332.149 degrees.

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 332.753 degrees.

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 320.013 degrees.

<7>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Brownfield, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
