Given a distance in metres (x) and two coordinate pairs in lat/lon format (which form a line segment), I am trying to find a point x meters from point 1 on the line segment between the two points.
I know that in order to use Shapely for this operation, I need to transform the points. Does it make sense to convert the lat/lon pairs to UTM and then use interpolate? If so, will it work to use metres as the measurement for distance, or will I need to convert that to something else as well?
I'm open to suggestions on the best way to go about using Shapely for this.
