Footnotes ...

<1>Area code (778) is an overlay for area code (604).
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Anvil Island) 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 Anvil Island. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Anvil Island

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Anvil Island. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.5148, Longitude: -123.3020    
<3>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
