Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rockville. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.6215, Longitude: -79.7048     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Rockville have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
