<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that stretches from Algoa. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Algoa) 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 Algoa. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Algoa

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Algoa. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.5074, Longitude: -91.1164     [Map].

<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.
