Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Greensboro. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.7014, Longitude: -87.5951     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Greensboro have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
