Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Pennsylvania's counties, including Centre, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Waddle - 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 drawn from Point A (ie- Waddle) 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 Waddle. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from WaddleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Waddle. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.8340, Longitude: -77.9347       In this case, the coordinates for Waddle have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
