<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting in Berlin. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Berlin) 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 Berlin. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Berlin

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Berlin. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.9680, Longitude: -88.9515     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Berlin have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The IATA and ICAO are organizations that, amongst other functions, provide identifying codes for airports. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is an airline trade organization. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is an agency of the United Nations. Although the codes are similar, be careful not to confuse them.

- Return to Citation

<4>On an airport-by-airport basis, an NFDC report typically includes a description of airport operations, contacts, the runway(s), and radio, navigation & weather frequencies. The National Flight Data Center (NFDC) is operated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with the purpose of collecting, validating and disseminating information about airports.

<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Berlin), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
