Function for Calculating Latitude/Longitude

Function for Calculating Latitude/Longitude

Function for Calculating Latitude/Longitude

Am looking to see if some type of custom function, plug-in, etc exists like a geocalculator to calculate latitude/longitude. Any ideas??

RE: Function for Calculating Latitude/Longitude

Calculate from what?  What does your source data look like, and how do you want it to appear after the calculation?

RE: Function for Calculating Latitude/Longitude

Sorry for the confusion  - I have a bit of it myself!  What I need to do is:  if I have 2 sites, each identified by latitude and longitude (decimals), I would like to perform a calculation based on the lat/long and return a value of distance between the 2 points - and then have that value converted to either feet or miles(preferred).  

So I don't need to calculate lat/long- we already have that- its to calculate the distance between 2 points.

I'll check it out...thanks!
