Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Pierce, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Midland refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Midland may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Midland - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>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 from Point A (ie- Midland) 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 Midland. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from MidlandOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Midland. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.1758, Longitude: -122.4069       In this case, the coordinates for Midland have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
