<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting from Gainesville. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Gainesville) 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 Gainesville. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Gainesville

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Gainesville. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.8149, Longitude: -88.1608     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Gainesville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
