<1>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- Swords) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Swords. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.5127, Longitude: -92.2623     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Swords have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
