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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rockwest. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.9999, Longitude: -87.3717       In this case, the coordinates for Rockwest have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>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.
