## What is the distance between cities calculator?

Some of the platforms simplified the way to determine the exact distance between two places, cities, countries, etc. The distance between places calculator allows users to easily and quickly discover and determine distances between even worldwide locations. The users should enter any desired location, the name of the streets, city names, villages, countries, and many other destinations directly into the search engine function. After writing the name of the city or places, then the users will get the shortest distance between the two points, the route (route planner) along with all other relevant information. In addition to that, users can also determine distances between coordinates, either latitude or longitude.

## How the distance between places calculator works

The distance between places calculator has various functions that help users to find the relevant and exact information about their routes in a couple of seconds. The value is usually given in a red or black color that indicates the air (flying) distance, also known as great circle distance. Still, depending on the distance calculator tools the user uses, it varies into colors. Most of the distance between places calculators shows both air (flying) distance and the driving distance, either in miles or kilometers; hence, it is handy for all types of users.

As users start to write the name of a city, country, or any place, the distance calculator will immediately suggest its user place names automatically, which means users may choose from them from the suggestion box to calculate distance. Besides, the users can also list the cities and the countries in them, to calculate the distance between two cities.

Each distance calculator tool has its functions; most of them contain the following tabs, such as:

• Start Location - Here, users of the distance calculator tool should write the starting point of their route, where the distance calculation starts from, that can be the origin city or even the name of the place they look.
• End Location - Here, users should indicate the endpoint of their route, where the distance calculation ends and can be a destination city, country, or place name.
• Distance Unit - Generally, the unit of distance, allows users to choose kilometers, meters, or miles, in which they will be able to see the exact distance between places. The distance calculator will also immediately calculate with a selected distance unit.
• Kilometers (km) - It is the unit of length, equal to 1000 meters or around 0.62137 miles.
• Miles (mi) - It is also the unit of length, which is rather rarely used. The miles unit is equal to approximately 1.60934 kilometers.

Some of the distance between places calculators also provide detailed information about the site. For instance, if a user wants to determine the distance between United States cities, the platform will immediately show the information about the distance from the United States to its major cities. The towns will be listed below the map, or it can allow users to choose from the suggestion list to calculate distance. When typing the United States, for instance, the distance calculator shows around 49 significant city distances that are calculated in United States country. Besides, this tool shows the GPS coordinates of the United States that are 37° 5' 24.8640" N and 95° 42' 46.4076" W.

## Determine flight time and flight distance via Distance Calculator

Some of the distance between places calculator has several additional functions besides showing the distance in miles and kilometers. For instance, if users want to know and discover the exact flight distance or even the specific flight time between two cities, airports, or places, they should enter the airport code, preferably IATA code. Once the IATA code is entered into the search engine tool, users will immediately get the appropriate data. If users do not have the right IATA code for the airport, then they should search for the desired destination, and soon the distance between places calculator will find and show the nearest airports displayed on the same page of this tool.
