Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Stowersville) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Stowersville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.2867, Longitude: -73.5212       In this case, the coordinates for Stowersville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<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.
