Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Alameda, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Ashland - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Ashland) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Ashland. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ashland

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ashland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6948, Longitude: -122.1136
