Quest for Scientific Pitch Notation

There appears to be a lot of conflicting information on the Internet regarding concert pitch and/or scientific pitch notation. I've experimented a little bit with spreadsheets, and I have found that a chromatic spectrum beginning at 440.0 Hz with note ratios of 1.05946 Hz minimizes calculation error. So far, the most accurate resource that I have found seems to be at this Wikipedia article about scientific pitch notation.
