Footnotes ...

<1>Unless noted otherwise, the population counts we use should be considered estimates. Our population values for Glendon 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 Glendon - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Area code (587) is an overlay for area code (780).
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Glendon) 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 Glendon. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Glendon

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Glendon. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 54.2511, Longitude: -111.1514    
<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.
