GPS distance FAQ

Dear Team,

What we need is a question to calculate the distance in meters between two GPS locations or more than two GPS locations.

For example, if we want to calculate the distance between the survey filling site and the following points:

  1. a playground located in the same city (the first predefined point) and
  2. a shopping center located in the same city (the second predefined point).

How to calculate the distance between survey filling site and the playground (the first predefined point), also the distance between the survey filling site and the shopping center (the second predefined point).

Regards,

Dear Zaid Shabaneh,

use the function point1.GpsDistance(point2) for meters or point1.GpsDistanceKm(point2) for kilometers.

Keep in mind that the distance is based on the approximation of the distance on a geoid and will be ignorant of the Earth relief in the location or the actual travel distances based on the roads network.

Best, Sergiy
