Pocket Distance Calculator computes distance and direction between any two points on the earth. In addition includes a huge database of 1150+ world city coordinates. This tool includes a database of total of 1150+ world city coordinates in latitudes and longitudes. You can select any two cities from the combo boxes. Distance and the direction between these cities are calculated and displayed automatically.
In distance computation a very accurate ellipsoidal distance algorithm is used instead of inaccurate methods like great circle method etc. Distances are given in both kms and miles. Angle of direction is also given in degrees.
Overview of the program:
· Coordinate (Latitude - Longitude) database of world major 1150+ cities
· Computes distance (range) and direction (bearing) between any two points on the earth
· Distances given in both kms and miles
· Angle of direction given in degrees
· Manual input of any coordinates
· Automatic and instant computation of distance and direction
· Very accurate ellipsoidal distance algorithm is used in distance computation
