Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Gay. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.7706, Longitude: -81.5532       In this case, the coordinates for Gay have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>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.
