GPS Distance Calculator


GPS Distance Calculator



Thanks to GPS technology, you can now find the EXACT distance (down to 15 feet or 5 meters) between any two points on the surface of the earth for which GPS coordinates are available. Since GPS coordinates have now been measured for many Sahyadri sites, you now have access to extremely accurate distance measurements between Sahyadri landmarks for the very first time!




All you need to do is to enter the latitude and longitude into the boxes shown below for 'Position A' and 'Position B'. The format of entry is the same as the values that you see currently in the boxes below (if you have not changed these yet). Both latitude and longitude are entered in numerical form only (ie, no alphabets such as N or E, etc, should be entered). Also ensure that the entries are in decimal form (eg, 18.11221 and not in 18 degrees 6.732 minutes).

To make it easier, a table of GPS coordinates of Sahyadri landmarks is provided below. You can cut and paste the GPS coordinates from this table, instead of manually typing these in. To find how you can access more GPS coordinates, see the information provided near the bottom of this page.

After making your entries for 'Position A' and 'Position B', hit the 'Compute' button to get the exact distance along the surface of the earth between the two points!
