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 Ely, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting from Ely. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ely) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ely. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.2791, Longitude: -122.6655     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Ely have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
