Footnotes ...

<1>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Abilene refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Abilene may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Abilene) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Abilene. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 54.1102, Longitude: -111.4911     [Map].

<5>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Abilene were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
