Latitude and longitude are essentially tools for navigation, but they are also useful for calculating distances across the earth's surface. GeoTAX takes any two latitude/longitude coordinates and, using a mathematical algorithm, calculates the distance between them. The distance calculated is a straight line between the two points, taking into consideration the curvature of the Earth's surface.
