How Far From Dalmatia to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Dalmatia to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Dalmatia and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Sunbury, which is the Seat of Northumberland County and lies 16 miles [25.7 km]<2> to the north northeast. If you could walk a straight line from Dalmatia to Sunbury, with an average speed<5> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take five to six hours.
    • Harrisburg, which is the State Capital of Pennsylvania, lies 25 miles [40.2 km] to the south (S). The buggy would take most of a day and walking would take just about two full days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 121 miles [194.7 km] to the south (S). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take about two hours, a buggy would take 5 days and walking would take 7 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>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.
<2>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- Dalmatia) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dalmatia. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.6543, Longitude: -76.9025       In this case, the coordinates for Dalmatia have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<5>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<6>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 Dalmatia to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 307.684 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 303.478 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 303.959 degrees.
