Footnotes ...

<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 from Point A (ie- Stump Town) 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 Stump Town. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Stump TownOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Stump Town. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.8283, Longitude: -113.3467       In this case, the coordinates for Stump Town have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<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>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 Stump Town, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<5>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Stump Town to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 333.516 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 333.852 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 322.065 degrees.
