Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Irvine.

This page contains two sections:

How Far From Irvine to ...

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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Irvine to:

  • Edmonton [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 284 miles [457.1 km] to the North Northwest (NNW). If you could drive a straight line from Irvine to Edmonton, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take four to five hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 17 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 11 days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,621 miles [2,608.7 km] to the East (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 64 days and walking would take 93 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,403 miles [10,304.6 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,171 miles [11,540.6 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,205 miles [8,376.6 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Irvine. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Irvine

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Irvine. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.9500, Longitude: -110.2667     [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 Irvine 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 331.182 degrees.

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 331.44 degrees.

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 319.675 degrees.
