How Far From Helina to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Helina to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Helina and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Edmonton, which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 104 miles [167.4 km]<2> to the southwest (SW). If you could drive a straight line from Helina to Edmonton, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 4 days.
    • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 1,686 miles [2,713.4 km] to the east (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 66 days and walking would take 96 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>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.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Helina) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Helina. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 54.4872, Longitude: -111.4917    
<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Helina to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 332.196 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 333.001 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 319.63 degrees.
