Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of North Dakota's counties, including Mercer, 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>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Stanton.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Stanton - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Stanton) 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 Stanton. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Stanton

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Stanton. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.3186, Longitude: -101.3824       In this case, the coordinates for Stanton have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<7>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
