Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Springfield) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Springfield. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Town of Springfield

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Springfield. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.1619, Longitude: -89.5448     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Springfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
