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 Allans Island, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Allans Island - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. 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.
<4>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 from Point A (ie- Allans Island) 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 Allans Island. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Allans Island

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Allans Island. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.8545, Longitude: -55.8046
