Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Indiana, 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>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Rossiter - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>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- Rossiter) 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 Rossiter. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Rossiter

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rossiter. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.8945, Longitude: -78.9311       In this case, the coordinates for Rossiter have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<5>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.
<6>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
