Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Alaska refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Alaska may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Alaska) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Alaska. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alaska

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alaska. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.6115, Longitude: -64.1107     [Map].
