City Coordinates

City Coordinates

This site uses coordinates of certain cities and locations for different purposes, such as the distance a city is from a particular storm.

The calculated distance from the center position of the storm or an observation point to any location (usually a city) is only an estimate. This figure is not given by the National Hurricane Center (NHC). It is independently calculated. Using the coordinates of the tropical entity from an NHC product or observation coordinates from a reconnaissance flight, we calculate the distance from that coordinate to the nearest major city in our database. For locations in the United States, we use the coordinates given by the U.S. Census Bureau's 2000 census. (Except the coordinates for Cape Hatteras, NC, which is actually for the lighthouse, which comes from the National Park Service.) For other locations around the Atlantic basin, we used Google Earth, which we found to be highly reliable. When compared with other data, Google Earth was usually the most accurate. In fact, Google Earth seemed to be even more accurate for some locations in the United States, though we decided to go with was officially listed at the U.S. Census Bureau.

The latitudes and longitudes below are still only estimates of where the center is of a city. A city, like a storm, is not a single point. Our city coordinates may be several miles off from an actual official city center (if there is one).

Usually, the most recognized English form of each location is what is listed on this site. For example, rather than "La Habana, Cuba," we give the city name as "Havana, Cuba."
