How to find out distance between current geolocation coordinate and target geolocation coordinate on every tick? I want to show user how much far (in metres) he is from target object every time he walks towards the target object.

Any help plz

What unit is your coordinate returned in? Or are you having trouble getting that?

I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.

Lat. and Long. are not in meters. They are in degrees or other units.

yes how to convert them to readable form and use it to calculate distance between two points?

Haversine formula ?

Haversine formula:

a = sin²(Δφ/2) + cos φ1 ⋅ cos φ2 ⋅ sin²(Δλ/2)

c = 2 ⋅ atan2( √a, √(1−a) )

d = R ⋅ c

where φ is latitude, λ is longitude, R is earth’s radius (mean radius = 6,371km);

note that angles need to be in radians!

Radians = Degrees * PI / 180

JavaScript:

var R = 6371e3; // metres

var φ1 = lat1.toRadians();

var φ2 = lat2.toRadians();

var Δφ = (lat2-lat1).toRadians();

var Δλ = (lon2-lon1).toRadians();

var a = Math.sin(Δφ/2) * Math.sin(Δφ/2) +

Math.cos(φ1) * Math.cos(φ2) *

Math.sin(Δλ/2) * Math.sin(Δλ/2);

var c = 2 * Math.atan2(Math.sqrt(a), Math.sqrt(1-a));

var d = R * c;

Thanks a lot..but im just starter with construct 2..c.ant understand so much math. any simpler solution will be big big help. thanks in advance.

True..so true..

here is a small example, with Browser.ExecJS : browserGeoDist.capx

(tested only in Chrome)

I tried to "translate" from javascript to C2 events...

- Code: Select all
`a = sin²(Δφ/2) + cos φ1 ⋅ cos φ2 ⋅ sin²(Δλ/2)`

c = 2 ⋅ atan2( √a, √(1−a) )

d = R ⋅ c

but there is no function atan2(Y,X) in C2?!!

....or I overlooked something?

Thanks @R0J0hound !

so..from

- Code: Select all
`atan2( √a, √(1−a) )`

to

- Code: Select all
`angle(0,0,sqrt(1-a),sqrt(a))*(pi/180)`

cool
