Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Missouri's counties, including Saint Louis, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>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.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Affton - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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 community (such as Affton). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Affton or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Affton) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Affton. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.5506, Longitude: -90.3332       In this case, the coordinates for Affton have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
