 ```I have a 25 mile radius from my residence. I have coordinates for two different addresses and I want to know the LINEAR distance between the two. The first address is 9818 Elder Avenue, Hanford, CA 93230. The latitude and longitude coordinates for this address are: Lat: 36:23:12N, Longitude: 119:38:01W. The second address is the Fresno Coin Gallery at 4616 North Blackstone Ave., Fresno, CA 93726. The latitude and longitude coordinates for this address are: Lat: 36:48:08N Long: 119:47:26W. Can you tell me if I have gone over my 25 mile radius in traveling from address one to address two? If so, what is the exact linear miles.```
 ```Greetings, Cheryl and Rocky! Yes, you have gone over your 25-mile radius, but only just. The distance between these two points is 29.98 linear miles, 26.05 nautical miles, or 48.25 kilometers. You can determine this by plugging your coordinates into the USDA site "Surface Distance Between Two Points of Latitude and Longitude" http://www.wcrl.ars.usda.gov/cec/java/lat-long.htm Search Strategy "distance between" "latitude and longitude" OR "latitudes and longitudes" ://www.google.com/search?q=%22distance+between%22+%22latitude+and+longitude%22+OR+%22latitudes+and+longitudes%22 Before Rating my Answer, if you have any Questions about the above information, please post a Request for Clarification, and I will see what I can do for you.

 ```Here's a URL that in theory gives you a map showing the 25 mile radius: http://tinyurl.com/4zeq2 This is from the Great Circle Mapper site (http://gc.kls2.com/) which of course is more suitable for larger distances than 25 miles. It would be useful if sites like Mappoint.com and Mapquest.com had this feature of mapping all points within a given distance from a given point.```
