Footnotes ...

<1>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Convent Glen) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Convent Glen. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4667, Longitude: -75.5333    
<2>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.
<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Convent Glen to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 306.316 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 302.716 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 301.159 degrees.
