<3>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 Green Grove to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

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.
