Wed Feb 08, 2006 10:26 am

Does anyone know of any tools online that will calculate the miles between two cities?

Thanks

Must be lots of them-- the problem is deciding which ones are right.

Most convenient site for airport-to-airport distance is http://gc.kls2.com but it only gives the distance to the nearest kilometer. Is that good enough?

Note that you can use it to calculate the distance between any two specified lat-lons, so you can use it for cities as well as airports.

Note that ERJ170s site says BOS-SCL is 8449 km, while http://gc.kls2.com says 8388. The latter is correct; the former apparently assumes a spherical earth.

Quoting Timz (Reply 3):

Heeheh.. cool.. I would much rather over compensate than under.. but that is good to know.. now, back to my route management applications..
