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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Overton. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.5045, Longitude: -86.6897     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Overton have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
