Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Florida's counties, including Calhoun, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Altha.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Altha - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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

<6>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.
