Distances.

I need help. Can anyone please give me a hint how I can find the distance between any two places on the globe? Google Maps doesn’t seem to do the trick.

  1. Use Google Earth.

  2. Ah. Not bad, either.

    I needed a solution badly and this helped: determine the latitude and longitude (which can be retrieved from Google Maps with a little trick) and apply math. I had Microsoft Excel help me. And I used the method described at http://www.math.montana.edu/frankw/ccp/cases/Global-Positioning/spherical-coordinates/learn.htm to verify my findings.

  3. Well; Math would have been my second suggestion. But I figured you wanted an easy tool.

  4. This may help:
    http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gro%C3%9Fkreis
    Multiply the value by 6371 km.

  5. Sounds interesting.
    Are you planning a looooooooong trip? ;-)
    Cheers,
    Nini

    And stop the yit dot com shit, please!

  7. Not a bad porn star – A bad spammer?

  8. Nah, Nils, it’s neither. Just a tad ignorant.

  9. Hit him with a clue-by-four.
