Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Salt Lake, 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 elevation is an estimate for the area around Union - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Area code (385) is an overlay for area code (801).
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Union) 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 Union. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Union

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Union. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 40.6205, Longitude: -111.8722       In this case, the coordinates for Union have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
