This clever little helper tells you the shortest way between two locations of your desire. Just enter your starting point and your
destination into the form below and you will know the distance in the blink of an eye.
The great-circle distance measures ± 82ft*
* This is the optimum accuracy which can be accomplished by the algorithm assuming no coordinate errors.
How to handle the form
I tried to keep the handling of DistCalc.com as simple as possible. In case of usability problems I want to help you solving them.
Thus, I have collected some kind of faqs for you.
DistCalc understands your WGS84 coordinates (latitude,longitude degree; e.g. 32.620433, -110.797511) as well as addresses
(e.g. 1786 W American Ave, Oracle, AZ 85623). Thus, you can either enter an address or the coordinates of your starting point. Alternatively drag the »home«-marker on the
desired point in the map or click the green »Current location« button right besides the form to fill in your starting point.
Just try the different possibilities!
For telling DistCalc where you want to go, just use one of the possibilities I showd you for selecting your starting point. There is only one limitation:
You are not able to use the green »Current location« button to fill in your destination.
In Germany »privacy« is a major topic in internet technology. Thus, I want to tell you what's going to happen to your personal data
like your current location after submitting it to DistCalc. First of all, none of the data you enter on DistCalc will be written to any database or
storage on my server. This includes first and foremost your current location (for me, it doesn't matter where you are right now. But I hope you enjoy being where you are. Anyway...).
Your location will be transferred to the algorithm which calculates the distance between your starting point and your destination. No information will be saved at any time of processing.
Once you clicked the »Get distance!« button DistCalc starts working. In the blink of an eye you can see a green area on the page containing
the distance between your starting point and your destination. Hooray!
