Hi All
Could someone please give me a formula to solve the
following problem.
Given a known Latitude and Longitude you move for example 8 stature
miles due west and then move 8 stature miles due north.
After moving this distance and direction what is your new Latitude
and Longitude?
Or put another way.
Draw a x and y axis on a pice of paper. The origin is
49.8167N and 73.1333W
what is the Latitude and Longitude of a point that is 8 miles due
west by 8 miles due north?
Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
