# How to plot distances distances in meters in QGIS?

My goal is to plot circles on QGIS canvas by taking distances in kilometers from MySQL base. This is code I use:

``````from PyQt4.QtCore import *
from PyQt4.QtGui import *
from qgis.core import *
from qgis.gui import *
from math import *

def funkcijaCrtanje(iface):

import MySQLdb
import sys

connection = MySQLdb.connect(host = "127.0.0.1", user = "root", passwd = "********", db = "mydb")
cursor = connection.cursor()
cursor.execute("select column from table")
data = cursor.fetchall()

edge = data[0]

def drawCircle(rb, center, edgePoint, N):
r = sqrt(center.sqrDist(edgePoint))
for itheta in range(N+1):
theta = itheta*(2.0 * (pi)/N)
# addPoint finkcija dodaje tocke QgsGeometry objektu i povezuje ih linijom

class Kruznice(QgsMapTool):
def __init__(self, canvas):
QgsMapTool.__init__(self, canvas)
self.canvas = canvas

self.segment = 100

def canvasPressEvent(self, e):
point = self.toMapCoordinates(e.pos())
n = 10
color = [Qt.red, Qt.blue, Qt.green, Qt.yellow]
for i, edge in enumerate(data):
rb = QgsRubberBand(self.canvas)
rb.setColor(color[i])
rb.setWidth(2)
ed = QgsPoint(point.x()+float(edge[0])*n*100, point.y()+1000)
drawCircle(rb, point, ed, self.segment)

krug = Kruznice(iface.mapCanvas())
iface.mapCanvas().setMapTool(krug)
``````

I'm not sure that I plot real distances on my map by using this. How can I solve this?
