Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in West View Park. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.1866, Longitude: -112.0288     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for West View Park have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route.
