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