<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Addison - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Addison) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Addison. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.4228, Longitude: -88.3745       In this case, the coordinates for Addison have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
