Footnotes ...

<1>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Truro - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<2>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- Truro) 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 Truro. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Truro

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Truro. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.3667, Longitude: -63.3000

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.
