# Calculating distance between 2 latitude longitude points

Hi, I have coordinates of two points between which I am trying to calculate distance.

1 of the probable solution I found over the internet was to use Palladian extension, but it has become paid now. Can you please suggest any solution to calculate using open source free option?

Lat1 Long1 Lat2 Long2
23.0965633 77.5144525 26.1805978 91.753943
23.0965633 77.5144525 15.3004543 74.0855134
23.0965633 77.5144525 15.3004543 74.0855134
23.0965633 77.5144525 15.3004543 74.0855134
23.0965633 77.5144525 18.521428 73.8544541
23.0965633 77.5144525 28.7218316 77.452685

do you need linear distance or real distance?

Hi @lelloba

Real.

Thanks!

Are you confident using APIs?
One solution can be making a series of API calls to an external service (Google, Here, Geoapify; something similar to this address Data Standardization - #5 by bruno29a, but with a routing service). How many distances do you have to compute?

Another solution is to compute a linear distance and increase it by a factor (10-12%) to simulate real distance. Not the most precise, but quick and costless. It might be an option.

Works like a charm! Thanks! Though not exact same to Google Maps but works for me.

APIs seems complicated to me.

Thanks for letting me know the factor of 10-12%. Thanks! It’s not too complicated, if you want I can create a small workflow, so you just have to insert your data and the api key.
That’s why I was asking the number of distances to compute. How many do you have?

If you are ok with the approximation, try to correct the factor. Take some addresses and calculate both real and linear distance; then calculate the average ratio between real and linear. You should get more precise results.
