Distance Calculation Introduction

The distance value in red color indicates the air (flying) distance, also known as great circle distance.

As you start to write the name of a city or place, distance calculator will suggest you place names automatically, you may choose from them to calculate distance. You can also list the countries and the cities in them, to calculate the distance between cities.

Start Location: is the starting point of route, where the distance calculation start from, origin city or place name.
End Location: is the end point of route, where the distance calculation end, destination city or place name.
Distance Unit: is the unit of distance, you can choose kilometers, miles or meters. Calculator will immediately calculate with selected distance unit.
Kilometers (km): is the unit of length equal to 1000 meters or 0.62137 miles.
Miles (mi): is also the unit of length which is rarely used and is equal to 1.60934 kilometers.

Please also show the direct line distance (if I dig a hole). Should be trivial to add.

How can I see waterways distance

Replace it to Google Maps. OpenStreetMap is boring.

Great for calculating how much power (wattage) I need to transmit from point A. to point B. Great tool.

I think you guys get Monterey, California confused with Monterey Park, California. I compared the distances from Monterey to other cities and then Pacific Grove, California to the same cities. The differences were significant though Monterey and Pacific Grove border on each other. You show Monterey as 351 miles from San Francisco and Pacific Grove 84 miles from San Francisco. How can that be when they border on each other?

This is too helpful in for passengers in travelling. It covers major town in The Gambia, West Africa?
Could it cover villages too in The Gambia, West Africa ?

Nice simple app. Straightforward to use and helpful. I can’t understand what the negative comments are all about. Haters gonna hate, I suppose.

Mr Silly 2019-12-30 03:53:55

When I zoom out I see five identical earths, how do I travel from one to another? It seems that i can only travel within one earth.
Without jokes: nice site!

Frankie 2019-12-18 16:53:49

Can it be calculated by routes (car and another type of vehicle)

Ron 2019-12-08 10:47:42

In spite of all the negative remarks, the calculator is accurate! You must enter the name of the city and the state. Having a common border has nothing to do with the distance between cities!! Play a little, and determine what you are doing wrong. It is not magic!!

Salahudeen kolawole Quadir 2019-11-28 07:59:19

What are the distances between Lagos to
Benin city?
How many hours can a bus use to reach the place?

Ian 2019-11-18 04:08:28

totally crazy figures given for mileage from one country to another in the printed charts for nearest country. For instance distance from Germany to Poland given as over 600 km when it is zero as they have a common border. Same with all the lists giving distances to the next country. If a country has a common border, the distance should always be 0 miles.

Jim Obasa 2019-11-11 15:40:27

Found it total useless. Entered New York City as origin and Albany as destination. Simple, right? Uh uh. Up comes the map with a line between New York City and Atlanta with a distance to match 1362.63 km 846.70 miles. Obviously a non-US site as it notes that miles is a unit of length which is rarely used. What else would be used in the US

The Fossill 2019-10-25 10:17:33

Love it!! Soooo easy to use and very accurate.

Franek 2019-10-24 01:12:27

It's a very helpful app. Simple and efficient.
Is there any app that would show the map on the global sphere ?

Pako 2019-10-10 13:24:42

It is a good Reference Distance but since all maps are wrong, the distances are also wrong. For instance if you want to plan a sailing trip from Cadiz, Spain to Fortaleza, Brazil, the official distance is 5,586.58 km, but on my Equidistant Azimuthal FLAT EARTH Map I get 7,152.9 km, a difference of 1,566.32 km !!
This happens when you want to tranverse from a North Hemisphere to a South Hemisphere. Another Example, from La Coruña, Spain to Halifax, Canada, the official distance is 4,329 km, and from my Equidistant Azimuthal Flat Earth Map I get 3,988.4 km, a difference of 341 km off the mark. If you want the distance in Nautical Miles, just divide by an arc minute of a degree, that´s to say, 1.855 km/ min.
DO NOT TRUST these Distances whatsoever if you are about to circumnavigate the Flat Globe one day on a Yatch and your Radio-Location System gets No signal at all, let's be clear, SATELLITES do not exist. If you go with that Ignorance, 100% you will wreck your boat. Just my experience from crossing the Atlantic Ocean several times. Be prepared for the big SurPriSe.

Very nice tool

Frank 2019-06-09 08:20:19

It does not handle gps coordinates properly. 32.732, -97.279 is in Fort Worth TX, but puts the pin in Florida.

thanks, nice site

kkjunior 2019-05-30 08:27:23

this site helps alot

Eugene 2019-05-17 13:13:25

Very useful approximations.
Travel time or road distance would be very helpful

Justin Bieber 2019-05-09 08:14:06

Great site!

Robert 2019-05-07 06:37:36

What happened to road distances? Air distances are not helpful to local in-country towns especially in African countries where most of our development work takes place

Tim Morgan 2019-04-29 00:49:14

I used to be able to get both air and road distances now I can only get air distance. Is there any way I can get the road distances also ?
Thanks. regards. Tim

David 2019-04-25 03:24:26

Superb distance that i found. Sydney(AUS) to Hvozdnice(CZE)

kisshore 2019-04-20 00:58:24

Nice app to find out the distance between two places and easy to reach Short route with land marks in the map. Awesome.

HAARIPPRIYA 2019-04-20 00:56:34

Very easy to get information and distance and time by map and calculator. Excellent.

Brie Sansotta 2019-04-03 03:48:45

Great tool. Helps with figuring out my expenses for travel for work.

Andy Collinge 2019-03-20 21:26:06

Not as good as it use to be, My car is not submersible !

Road Warrior 2019-03-13 05:51:40

Thanks to your site I was able to calculate my travel distance in the past month at just over 30,000 miles (about 48,000km). I'm from the US and even though I don't use km I still took the time to do some simple math. That's why we're better than you ;)

Mehrzad 2019-03-04 10:23:43

Earth's perimeter is almost 20000 KM
We actually calculated the longest distance from some point to another on our beloved planet !
It's Perth to Bermuda with 19943.76 KM and yeah we are not from US so we don't care about how much mile is it :-)
Have a good day lads

Arrotin Plastics 2019-03-04 08:29:35

What happened to the freeway instructions from point A to point B?????

Jim Brown 2019-03-02 11:17:27

I don't know what map you use but it sure is not the same as mine----are you in the US?

Jim Brown 2019-03-02 11:15:19

I asked for distance from Basin,Wy to Watertown, South Dakota and I got the distance to the east coast--- does Watertown,Sd no longer exist?

Jim Brown 2019-03-02 11:10:51

What is so hard to look up where I want to go instead of where you want? Wake Up

Marty 2019-02-28 05:56:21

We are importers and site is great in estimates

Bob B. 2019-02-24 12:59:14

At one time, also showed driving distance in blue. Nice addition. Wish it was back.

leo 2019-02-24 08:24:20

awesome site. very useful for calculating aerial distances. good for aviators.

rick bon 2019-02-21 01:32:51

Very easy to use site, identified my choice of starting city correctly from 3 similarly named places and also the end point, a minor point of interest. No trouble and also lovely there's no ads. Thank you.

Only quibble is the key which states "Miles (mi): is also the unit of length which is rarely used and is equal to 1.60934 kilometers". Here in the UK our travel distances including road signs are in Miles and that is the unit we use for any trip. OK, as a scientist, I studied using metric units and am comfortable with them, but journeys are in Miles!
