Footnotes ...

<1>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Drumheller were taken from various sources and although they can be traced back to Statistics Canada (StatCan), they should not be considered official.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Drumheller - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (403).
<4>The Canadian Postal Code consists of 6 characters, where the first three characters are the 'Forward Sortation Area (FSA)', with the last three characters being the 'Local Delivery Unit (LDU)'. In the case of Drumheller, we provide only the FSA and not the LDU. The Canadian Postal Codes were created as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. So keep in mind that any given Postal Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Drumheller). The boundaries of the Postal Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other Postal Codes. When looking for a Postal Code, whether Drumheller or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the Canada Post / Postes Canada.
<5>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Drumheller) 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 Drumheller. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Drumheller

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Drumheller. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.4620, Longitude: -112.7108
