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

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.
