## How do you calculate distance using latitude and longitude?

For this divide the values of longitude and latitude of both the points by 180/pi. The value of pi is 22/7. The value of 180/pi is approximately 57.29577951. If we want to calculate the distance between two places in miles, use the value 3, 963, which is the radius of Earth.

**What is the distance between two latitude longitude points?**

69.172 miles

A degree of longitude is widest at the equator with a distance of 69.172 miles (111.321 kilometers). The distance gradually shrinks to zero as they meet at the poles. At 40 degrees north or south, the distance between a degree of longitude is 53 miles (85 kilometers).

### How do you convert latitude to distance?

One degree of latitude equals approximately 364,000 feet (69 miles), one minute equals 6,068 feet (1.15 miles), and one-second equals 101 feet. One-degree of longitude equals 288,200 feet (54.6 miles), one minute equals 4,800 feet (0.91 mile), and one second equals 80 feet.

**How do I calculate distance using latitude and longitude on Google Maps?**

Latitude coordinates change into miles easily as one minute of latitude = 1 mile. Longitude is a bit more difficult as the meridians of longitude converge when approaching the poles. The formula for calculating longitude distance is: “Dep = d. long * Cos Mid.

## How do I calculate distance using latitude and longitude in Excel?

Here are the formulas for degree coordinates:

- Cell B5: =distvincenty(B2,C2,B3,C3)
- Cell D5: =MOD(DEGREES(ATAN2(COS(B2*PI()/180) *SIN(B3*PI()/180)-SIN(B2*PI()/180) *COS(B3*PI()/180) *COS(C3*PI()/180-C2*PI()/180), SIN(C3*PI()/180-C2*PI()/180) *COS(B2*PI()/180)))+360,360)

**How do you find the distance between two ground points?**

a. The ground distance between two points is determined by measuring between the same two points on the map and then multiplying the map measurement by the denominator of the RF or scale (Figure 5-1).

### What is the formula to calculate distance on a map?

Summary. To calculate distance on a map you must do the following: Measure distance between two points on a map in cm or mm. Multiply this by the scale of the map and divide by 100 000 if you used centimetres or by 1000 000 if you used millimetres to get kilometres.
