Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. 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. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Trammell, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Trammell. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.2945, Longitude: -94.4708     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Trammell have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<4>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 Trammell to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
