  Distance between:
  Point A (Latitude 34.626563and longitude -84.193983)
  Point B (Latitude 34.631090and longitude -84.195465)

  0.521 km, Great Circle formula, and
  0.52 km, Accurate Ellipsoid formula.

  Point B is at 344.9 degrees, or North North West, from point A.

    Can I ask someone to calculate the distance between the two points below?  I 
    am attempting to convert center line data for the Appalachian Trail in 
    preparation to using Loadstone to hike it.  The data file contains
    over 300,000 points.  The points below represent the first and twentieth 
    points.  I believe I can convert the data myself but don't want to convert
    over 300,000 points.  First, that would take a great deal of time.  Second, 
    that would probably overwhelm my phone and my ability to deal with the data
    I would have.  Therefore, I want a representative sample or number of 
    points.  I thought every twentieth point might be a good number to get an 
    idea of the distance between two points.  I intend to use that information 
    to decide how many points to convert.

    I have good shelter data and will probably get data for other landmarks.
    There are about 300 shelters in an over 2,000 mile-long trail.  That leaves
    large gaps about which I have no information.  I want to convert enough
    center line data to make sure I know where I'm going between named points
    for which I have data.  I want something similar to the white blazes sighted
    people use to hike the same trail.  Any help calculating distances between
    points would be appreciated.

    34.631090 -84.195465

    Thank You and Happy Holidays,
