I have two points on earth. What is the distance between them? Obviously it is not sqrt(pow(long1 - long2,2) + pow(lat1 - lat2,2) )

Ask clarification

This class should make it easy for you. It calculates the distance between two points on the earth sphere. The example shows how easy it is to use as well.

I hope this helps.

This class will calculate the distance between two points and perform a conversion from miles to whatever unit you are after. If I am reading it correctly, the formula (which is in the class) is for a straight line and does not take into account the curvature of the earth, so it may be off slightly.
