<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.

<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Wales - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Wales) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Wales. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.2490, Longitude: -87.0828       In this case, the coordinates for Wales have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
