Footnotes ...

<1>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Buena Vista.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Buena Vista) 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 Buena Vista. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Buena Vista

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Buena Vista. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.2480, Longitude: -90.2548       In this case, the coordinates for Buena Vista have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>If you're interested in how the shape of Wisconsin's counties, including Richland, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<5>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Buena Vista), 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.
