Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Roanoke. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.2710, Longitude: -79.9414     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Roanoke have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
