## How do you convert decimal degrees to meters?

A value in decimal degrees to an accuracy of 4 decimal places is accurate to 11.1 meters (+/- 5.55 m) at the equator. A value in decimal degrees to 5 decimal places is accurate to 1.11 meter at the equator….Accuracy.

decimal places | degrees | distance |
---|---|---|

1 | 0.1 | 11.1 km |

2 | 0.01 | 1.11 km |

3 | 0.001 | 111 m |

4 | 0.0001 | 11.1 m |

**How many meters are in a degree of latitude?**

The distance from the North Pole to the equator is about 10,000 km. Since this covers 90 degrees of latitude, we can deduce that each degree of latitude is about 111.111 km or 111,111 metres.

**How many km is a degree?**

111 km

Approximate Metric Equivalents for Degrees. At the equator for longitude and for latitude anywhere, the following approximations are valid: 1 = 111 km (or 60 nautical miles)

### How do you convert decimal degrees to miles?

Divide the amount of miles by the degrees in a circle. The circumference of the earth along the equator is 24,901.92 miles, and there are 360 degrees in a circle. This results in about 69.2 miles. That is the approximate distance between each degree of latitude.

**How do you convert from radians to meters?**

If you know the arc meters of the radian, you can multiply 2pi to get the circumference. That’s literally the closest it gets with radians to meters. Radians are a unit of angle measure. Meters are a unit of length.

**How do you convert decimal degrees to DDM?**

How to Convert Decimal Degrees to DMS

- For the degrees use the whole number part of the decimal.
- For the minutes multiply the remaining decimal by 60. Use the whole number part of the answer as minutes.
- For the seconds multiply the new remaining decimal by 60.

## What is the correct formula to compute for the distance?

Learn how to find the distance between two points by using the distance formula, which is an application of the Pythagorean theorem. We can rewrite the Pythagorean theorem as d=√((x_2-x_1)²+(y_2-y_1)²) to find the distance between any two points.

**How many miles is a degree?**

69 miles

A degree of latitude, one degree north or south, is about the same distance anywhere, about 69 miles (111 kilometers). But a degree of longitude, one degree east or west, is a different distance at different points on the globe.
