Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of South Dakota's counties, including Walworth, 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 pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Java. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<4>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Java.
<5>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Java - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Java) 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 Java. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Java

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Java. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.5036, Longitude: -99.8846       In this case, the coordinates for Java have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
