<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a city (such as Norway). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Norway or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance from Norway. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Norway) 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 Norway. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Norway

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Norway. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.8025, Longitude: -87.9148     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Norway have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
