Footnotes ...

<1>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.

<2>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 Erie 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 Erie may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Erie. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.6476, Longitude: -84.5747     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Erie have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
