A Method of Finding the Distance Between Two Places on the Surface of the Earth
Keywords:Great circle, Sphere, Latitude and Longitude.
Differential Geometry is the language of modern physics and provides us with a new technique of solving the problems related to the calculation of the plane and surface with parameters. There is a lot of application of Differential Geometry in calculating some of the geographical problems. Finding the distance between my house to my friend’s house in the next block is very easy but the approach to calculate the distance between two places holds true only to a certain extent. In this paper we have tried to build a method for finding the distance between two places on the surface of the earth using differential Geometry.
