<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alvin) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alvin. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.2343, Longitude: -83.3240       In this case, the coordinates for Alvin have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
