<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.

<4>Area code (971) is an overlay for area code (503).
<5>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- Advance) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Advance. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.3173, Longitude: -122.7126       In this case, the coordinates for Advance have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
