<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Dundee.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Dundee - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

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