Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Kentucky's counties, including Johnson, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Asa - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>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.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Asa) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Asa. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.7678, Longitude: -82.9033
