Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Acme, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Acme - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

- Return to Citation

<4>Area code (769) is an overlay for area code (601).

<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Acme) 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 Acme. 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 Acme

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Acme. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.9675, Longitude: -89.1717     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Acme have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
