Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Ohio's counties, including Meigs, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<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.
<3>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 Rutland refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a village's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Rutland may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Rutland.
<5>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Rutland - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<6>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- Rutland) 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 Rutland. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Rutland

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rutland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.0411, Longitude: -82.1279       In this case, the coordinates for Rutland have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
