I posted a page this evening that lets you calculate the distance between two locations using their latitudes and longitudes. I’ve had to do this calculation once in a while and thought I’d make it available online for anyone else who needed to do the same. There is one page providing an online calculator and another page giving the formula used to calculate the distances and its derivation.
This project was prompted by a friend asking me how far my home is from Galveston where the hurricane is supposed to make landfall this weekend. Since we live northwest of Houston, we’re pretty far inland.
