How Far From Dundas to ...

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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • New Rockford, which is the Seat of Eddy County and lies just to the West Northwest.
    • Bismarck, which is the State Capital of North Dakota, lies 99 miles [159.3 km]<1> to the southwest (SW). If you could drive a straight line from Dundas to Bismarck, with an average speed<4>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 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take three full days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 1,253 miles [2,016.5 km] to the east southeast (ESE). Driving would take about three full days, a buggy would take 49 days and walking would take 72 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Dundas) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dundas. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.6400, Longitude: -99.0296       In this case, the coordinates for Dundas 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>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<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 Dundas 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 322.497 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 321.285 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 313.246 degrees.
