Namespace:  System.Device.Location
Assembly:  System.Device (in System.Device.dll)

public double GetDistanceTo(
	GeoCoordinate other
)

Parameters

other
Type: System.Device.Location.GeoCoordinate

The GeoCoordinate for the location to calculate the distance to.

Return Value

Type: System.Double
The distance between the two coordinates, in meters.

The Haversine formula is used to calculate the distance. The Haversine formula accounts for the curvature of the earth, but assumes a spherical earth rather than an ellipsoid. For long distances, the Haversine formula introduces an error of less than 0.1 percent.

Altitude is not used to calculate the distance.
