Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Baltimore, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Alabama's counties, including Cullman, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>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 Baltimore 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 Baltimore may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<5>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Baltimore - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<6>Area code (938) is an overlay for area code (256).
<7>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- Baltimore) 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 Baltimore. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Baltimore

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Baltimore. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.9176, Longitude: -86.8869       In this case, the coordinates for Baltimore have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
