Latitudal lines appear parrellel but longnitudal lines cross at the poles
making the distance between them vary dependant on latitude. Using 2 sets
of Gobal Satilite Positioning coordinates, how would you determine the direct
distance between the 2 locations. Secondly are all latitdue lines equidistant
per degree,including 89 deg to a pole?
