Hi David, please have a look at How Far Can I Travel.

First, thanks for the great tool. It would be useful to add a radius of distance of travel, not just as the crow flies.

I used this website for an assignment, but had to print screen the image of the radius, for future reference's could you make a copy image option underneath it?
