Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Ipswich) 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 Ipswich. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Ipswich

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Ipswich. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4441, Longitude: -99.0304       In this case, the coordinates for Ipswich have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<3>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.
<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 Ipswich 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 322.463 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 320.979 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 313.742 degrees.
