How to use the Range Finder Tool


Please note that the range finder tool uses great circle distances. This means that on this flat map the expected end point may not be exactly as you expect on screen especially over large distances, but this is a truer estimation of the actual end point in real life.

all navy ships that did not record their coordinances in Vietnam war will need this to show exactly their route using the steering degrees-time --base point.

I just want a straight line along my latitude. I want to see if there are any villages in the world which are directly east or west of where I am, but this tool gives an annoying curve. Thanks

Would love it if I could manually enter the GPS coordinates for the starting point in a variety of formats, and get the ending point back textually.

Hi Tew Han Kiong, so you wish to input the points using latitude and longitude?

Can we find our point using coordinates?

Thanks for the feedback Kim

Very helpful map tool! Suggestions: 1. Map refresh is not complete when Medium or Large are selected. 2. The margin used for scroll activation is too large - you should allow the cursor to move closer to the edge of the map.

i suggest that you should also include a "spread" function for broadcasting ideals please. and also if you could fill in the spread with color or outline, and allow it to be resizable via click

Suggest coordinate entry for starting point.

Driving long distances over multiple days, might be useful to be able to plot circle ranges over multiple days, such as on flying maps.

Even without being able to click on an endpoint, it's sufficient to try a few numbers and refine a guess at a bearing. (This was the first thing I found when attempting to figure out from a photo where a lightning strike might have been...) Thanks!
