I don't really have a good understanding of GPS other than I know what Latitude is and what Longitude is, but I don't know how exactly to move between the 2 points.

First point is Lat: 56.53515 and Lng: -111.53155 Second point is Lat: 54.13513 and Lng: -112.41244

How can I move between the two points, at say 1.3 meters per second?

This is for a program I'm working on, the 1.3m was just a random speed, and the coordinates were random as well. I would like to know how to calculate the distance between two points, so I can get the time it would take to travel that distance so I can increment / decrement the lat/lng at that speed until there.

    Are you just trying to generate a list of points between those points at 1Hz? Tools? Programming language? What does GPS have to do with this? – BradHards Jul 28 '16 at 7:18
  • There are a number of similar questions here, which use the geodetic direct snd forwoard problems to calculate distance/bearing from two points, then calculate a new point from the first point with bearing and (fractional) distance. The parts you're missing are a programming framework, a code library the implents the geodetic problems, and your attempt at a solution. – Vince Jul 28 '16 at 11:09

You can identify these two locations using Google Maps, just by entering the coordinates like (56.53515, -111.53155) and (54.13513, -112.41244)

These show as being in Alberta Canada (the two stars in the map below). Moving between the two may be slow at 1.3m/s as the distance between the two is about 275km

  • Thank you for your reply, I don't know if I should have asked this in stack overflow because I'm using this for a project I'm currently working on, so unfortunately it isn't as easy as just looking it up on google and away we go :/ – Datsik Jul 28 '16 at 7:14

    @Datsik please expand your question then, as it's unclear what you're actually wanting to do or how you intend on moving between the two points – Midavalo Jul 28 '16 at 7:16
