Footnotes ...

<1>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- Opelika) 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 Opelika. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Opelika

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Opelika. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.6600, Longitude: -85.3803     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Opelika have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
