<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Springfield) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Springfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6274, Longitude: -79.5873       In this case, the coordinates for Springfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
