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 obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- East Meadows) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for East Meadows. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from East MeadowsOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in East Meadows. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.5983, Longitude: -52.7100    
<2>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.
<3>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.
<4>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 East Meadows to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 291.381 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 286.57 degrees.
