<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Mountview) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mountview. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6421, Longitude: -81.0654       In this case, the coordinates for Mountview have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
