Addon for calculator
« on: September 14, 2011, 18:13:07 »
Dear Timo,

It would be nice if you can add latitude and longitude distance calculator into current calculator,
easier for us to calculate distance for training and competitions.

I found the equation for it
Code: [Select]
d=111.12cos{1/[sinΦAsinΦB十cosΦAcosΦBcos(λB—λA)]} and please check your messages box, I've attached a link from my site, it's a web format calculator,
you can right click and read the source code.
(I'm not a programmer, hope it's helpful if you decide to add one.)

A distance calculator is on my roadmap, but haven't got the time to implement this. Maybe now is a good time :-).
I was thinking about linking this to the saved racepoints, and do the same in the velocity calculator. So users can have benefit from entering the latitude/longitude/distance into the racepoint manager.

Thanks for your link. I'll first have a look if I can find some ready to use Python code, though :-).
