Title

Calculate Distance Between Two LAT/LONG Positons

Post

     Stumped!

     I have created a database that I will be using for observations in a helicopter.  What I would like to do is be able to calculate the distance (value output preferably in meters) between two geographical points in a flight path.  Basically, I would use the LocationValue feature to obtain both sets of LAT/LONG data and then I would want a field to display the calculated distance between those two points.

     I did some research on the forums and the closest result I could find referenced a link with a sample script in 2009, but it's a little beyond my scripting capabilities to tweak enough to fit my application:

     Any help is appreciated, thanks!
