<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Tunis) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Tunis. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.8069, Longitude: -110.8427       In this case, the coordinates for Tunis have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
