Geographic Distance

Enter values in decimal degrees, degrees and minutes, or degrees, minutes, and seconds. Separate minutes and seconds using spaces or colon (:) characters.

Use negative numbers for west longitudes and south latitudes. Choose Compute to get the geographic distance.

The distance will be reported in meters, and latitudes and longitudes will be reported in decimal degrees.
