Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bolen Town) 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 Bolen Town. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bolen TownOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bolen Town. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.4752, Longitude: -81.0173       In this case, the coordinates for Bolen Town have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<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.
