<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Milo) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Milo. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.6539, Longitude: -85.4683       In this case, the coordinates for Milo have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
