Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Windsor refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a town's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Windsor may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Windsor - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>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- Windsor) 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 Windsor. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Windsor

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Windsor. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.9930, Longitude: -64.1365    
<4>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<5>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.
