How Far From Danzig to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Danzig to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Danzig and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Ashley, which is the Seat of McIntosh County and lies just to the Southeast.
    • Bismarck, which is the State Capital of North Dakota, lies 76 miles [122.3 km]<3> to the northwest (NW). If you could drive a straight line from Danzig to Bismarck, with an average speed<5>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,241 miles [1,997.2 km] to the east southeast (ESE). Driving would take about three full days, a buggy would take 49 days and walking would take 71 days.

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 Danzig, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<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>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Danzig) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Danzig. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.1380, Longitude: -99.4748       In this case, the coordinates for Danzig have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>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.
<6>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 Danzig to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 322.807 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 321.456 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 313.847 degrees.
