They used topographic data from a digital scale model prepared by the US Geological Survey, and they purchased a pancake from the International House of Pancakes. If perfect flatness were a value of 1.00, they reported, the calculated flatness of a pancake would be 0.957 "which is pretty flat, but far from perfectly flat". Kansas's flatness however turned out to be 0.997, which they said might be described, mathematically, as "damn flat".
then that settles it.
We'll use a pancake for Kansas.
Now, does anyone else think Arkansas could use something as well?
...I have no idea, because I know absolutely nothing about Arkansas.
