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 drawn from Point A (ie- Brownsville) 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 Brownsville. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Brownsville

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Brownsville. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 25.9981, Longitude: -97.4566     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Brownsville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
