Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Halifax) 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 Halifax. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Halifax

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Halifax. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.7612, Longitude: -78.9279     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Halifax have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
