Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Monterey, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Carmel-by-the-Sea refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a city's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Carmel-by-the-Sea may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Carmel-by-the-Sea.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Carmel-by-the-Sea - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Carmel-by-the-Sea).

A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Carmel-by-the-Sea) 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 Carmel-by-the-Sea. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Carmel-by-the-SeaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

<8>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<9>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.
