## What is the distance between two lat?

Distance Between Lines of Latitude Lines of latitude are called parallels and in total there are 180 degrees of latitude. The distance between each degree of latitude is about 69 miles (110 kilometers).

## What is the formula for latitude and longitude?

Distance

Formula: | Δψ = ln( tan(π/4 + φ2/2) / tan(π/4 + φ1/2) ) | (‘projected’ latitude difference) |
---|---|---|

q = Δφ/Δψ (or cosφ for E-W line) | ||

d = √(Δφ² + q²⋅Δλ²) ⋅ R | (Pythagoras) | |

where | φ is latitude, λ is longitude, Δλ is taking shortest route (<180°), R is the earth’s radius, ln is natural log |

## How do you find the difference in time between two longitudes?

The time difference between each longitude (each degree) is 4 minutes. So if it is 12 noon at Greenwich (0 degree), it would be 12:04 pm at 1 degree meridian and so on. In India, the standard meridian is 82-and-half degree.

## What distance is 1 degree of latitude?

about 111 kilometers

One degree of latitude, called an arcdegree, covers about 111 kilometers (69 miles). Because of the Earth’s curvature, the farther the circles are from the Equator, the smaller they are. At the North and South Poles, arcdegrees are simply points. Degrees of latitude are divided into 60 minutes.

## How do you calculate time between two countries?

## How to calculate distance between two latitudes and longitudes in Excel?

There are three basic Excel tools that can work for you, no matter how you want to manipulate your geographic coordinates. You’ll need to know how to calculate the distance between two latitude and longitude points, how to convert latitude and longitude data to decimal degrees, and finally, how to geocode latitudes and longitudes.

## How to calculate the distance between two points?

Latitude/Longitude Distance Calculator Enter latitude and longitude of two points, select the desired units: nautical miles (nm), statute miles (sm), or kilometers (km) and click Compute.

## How to calculate the distance between East and West?

Unlike latitude, however, the earth’s longitude at both east and west reaches 180°. One of the most common ways to calculate distances using latitude and longitude is the haversine formula, which is used to measure distances on a sphere.

## Where do the degrees of latitude and longitude converge?

They are farthest apart at the equator and converge at the poles. A degree of longitude is widest at the equator with a distance of 69.172 miles (111.321 kilometers). The distance gradually shrinks to zero as they meet at the poles.
