Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Los Angeles, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Hollywood - 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 things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Hollywood) 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 Hollywood. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Hollywood

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hollywood. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.0908, Longitude: -118.3267
