Footnotes ...

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 Monarch, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Monarch. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.9030, Longitude: -107.0351     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Monarch have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
