Computing distance using lat/long coordinates


Fill in the latitude and longitude of two geographic locations and compute the distance between the points. The distance returned is the arc length of a great circle connecting the two points, essentially air miles. (Details)

Note that latitude and longitude are in degrees. Latitude is in degrees north of the equator; southern latitudes are negative degrees north. Longitude is in degrees east of the prime meridian; degrees west are negative degrees east.
