Distance Calculator Between Two GPS Points
Many handheld GPS units give distances in kilometers and miles. Depending on the resolution, converting these values to meters and feet can result in a very low accuracy. For example, a GPS unit gives the distance out to 0.01 kilometer or 0.01 mile. This corresponds to an accuracy of only 10 meters or 53 feet.

Use this tool to calculate the great circle distance between two GPS points. The points can be in decimal degrees (dd.ddddd), degrees and minutes (dd mm.mmmmm) or degrees, minutes and seconds (dd mm ss.sssss). The distance calculation will be given in meters, feet, kilometers and miles.
