GeoCoordinate.GetDistanceTo(GeoCoordinate)
GeoCoordinate.GetDistanceTo(GeoCoordinate)
GeoCoordinate.GetDistanceTo(GeoCoordinate)
GeoCoordinate.GetDistanceTo(GeoCoordinate)
Method

## Definition

Returns the distance between the latitude and longitude coordinates that are specified by this GeoCoordinate and another specified GeoCoordinate.

```
public:
double GetDistanceTo(System::Device::Location::GeoCoordinate ^ other);
```

`public double GetDistanceTo (System.Device.Location.GeoCoordinate other);`

`member this.GetDistanceTo : System.Device.Location.GeoCoordinate -> double`

`Public Function GetDistanceTo (other As GeoCoordinate) As Double`

#### Parameters

The GeoCoordinate for the location to calculate the distance to.

#### Returns

## Remarks

The Haversine formula is used to calculate the distance. The Haversine formula accounts for the curvature of the earth, but assumes a spherical earth rather than an ellipsoid. For long distances, the Haversine formula introduces an error of less than 0.1 percent.

Altitude is not used to calculate the distance.
