This site has the formulas you're looking for, under 'lat/lon given radial and distance': http://williams.best.vwh.net/avform.htm Keep in mind this assumes a spherical Earth. Close enough for most purposes.

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" 73 DE John KB2SCS E-Mail: kb2scs at arrl.net Web Page: http://www.qsl.net/kb2scs _______________________________________________ aprssig mailing list aprssig at lists.tapr.org https://lists.tapr.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/aprssig
