  • Mathematical Problem

    Guys,

    I need your help....

    Let's say I have a point which is located at 14 30' 31N 121 1' 11E, we will name this point as A. I have another point located at 15 11' 10N 120 33' 37E, will name this as B. What is the formula to know if B is within 300Meters of A?

    Is it possible to convert this points into Meters?

    Please and Thanks for any help I can get ! ...

    Let's say...you need to make a third point of reference. say point C;

    With this way; you complete a triangle.

    then use the phytagorean theorem where a^2 + b^2 = c^2
    (^2 = squared)


    Lets not go into the details... You're scaring me

    Hope this helps !

      Ya that should be sufficient, but I've been taught to use spherical coordinates to get the most accurate results... but even I don't really remember that now!
      In any case, since 1 minute (or 1/60 degree) = 1 nautical mile, once you know how many degrees those two points are apart, you can convert to metres using the conversion ratio of 1 NM = 1852 metres.
