comment Calculating Lat/Lng X miles from point
Very good question, despite the wording in my question that may have indicated that I was calculating a destination for a traveler, I am not. Good point though. This was mainly so that I could calculate a bounding area (on a small order, say 50 miles)... I hope that makes sense.

Awesome! Thank you very much for the link to the Aviation Formulary article by Ed Williams, I had not seen this before but it has thus far proven to be a great read. Just a note for anyone looking at this in the future, the inputs and outputs of this formula are ALL in radians, even the distance.

Thank you for the quick reply. Let me digest some of this information, and I will get back with you. On the surface, though, this looks spot on.

Sorry I wasn't specific... I am looking for a formula. I'll update my question to be more specific.
