<1>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- Smithfield) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Smithfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.5455, Longitude: -91.2946     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Smithfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
