Distances Between Longitude
And Latitude Positions
three different formats, decimal degrees (DD.DD), degrees and decimal
minutes (DD:MM.MM) or degrees, minutes, and decimal seconds
(DD:MM:SS.SS). Select an originating point by entering the longitude and latitude associated with it. Then select a destination point and do the same thing. Then select nautical miles (nm), statute miles (sm), or kilometers (km) as the distance designation. Click the Calculate button and the distance information will be displayed. Be aware that this calculator does not take into consideration weather, winds, magnetic deviation or other navigation factors which may effect the course and ultimately, the distance. For a different view with additional information, try our Marine Navigation Information Calculator. For a degree only approximation, try our Longitude Latitude Distance Calculator. Also, we have a GPS Longitude Latitude Distance Calculator application yielding distance and bearing information and a conversion utility to allow interchange between all three major designations. The GPS Longitude Latitude Converter is also a general source for latitude and longitude information and knowledge. This calculator is based on Ed Williams methodology (known to virtually all pilots) and we acknowlege and appreciate the permission to use it as comparison to our own. We have included a great source for latitude/longitude information in the US within the calculator.
The values for the Origin are for Palm Springs, CA airport (33.8280741 Nlat, 116.5069582 Wlon) in the low southern CA desert, and the Destination is Page, AZ airport (36.9258221 Nlat, 111.4490456 Wlon), near the west side of Lake Powell. Both were measured at the center of the airport on a 2007 trip from Palm Spring to Page and back. If you click on the Calculate button, you should see the direct distance of 309 nautical miles.
