Georeference RemarksLocated the highway exit/intersection for the town of Paxico on I-70, and measured .5 miles from the center of this junction east along I-70. Used MaNIS georeferencing calculator for distance at a heading along a path uncertainty, using the width of the highway junction (the whole cloverleaf), as the extent of the named area.
