Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting from Warren. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Warren) 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 Warren. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Town of Warren

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Warren. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.9894, Longitude: -92.5555     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Warren have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Warren to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
