Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Kern, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Vinland - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Vinland) 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 Vinland. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from VinlandOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Vinland.
