Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of North Dakota's counties, including Sargent, 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 Crete - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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- Crete) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Crete. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.2002, Longitude: -97.9629       In this case, the coordinates for Crete have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
