Footnotes ...

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

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Uno. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6285, Longitude: -81.7373     [Map].

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

<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 Uno to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<7>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Uno, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
