Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that stretches from Argo. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Argo) to Point B.
Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Argo. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.6966, Longitude: -86.5086 [Map]. In this case, the coordinates for Argo have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
