Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Virginia's counties, including Hanover, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Rockville - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>ZIP Codes have been created by the United States Postal Service (USPS) as a way of grouping addresses to make delivery more efficient. The boundaries of the ZIP Code can be changed, re-assigned, eliminated or overlapped with other ZIP Codes. So keep in mind that any given ZIP Code is only 'loosely' associated with a community (such as Rockville). When looking for a ZIP Code, whether Rockville or elsewhere, it's always best to check the website of the United States Postal Service (USPS).

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Rockville) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Rockville. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from RockvilleOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rockville.
