<3>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Ashland) 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 Ashland. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from AshlandOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ashland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.3305, Longitude: -79.5160

<5>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.

We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
