Calculating
Distance as the Eagle Flies
Calculating
distances from one point to another can be challenging. Here are a
few methods for doing this.
 On a
map we can use a ruler to measure distance, and then convert inches/cm
to miles or kilometers using the map's scale bar.
 On a
globe you can use string to measure distances, then convert to inches
as above.
How can you use Journey North coordinate data to determine distances from one
sighting to another?
With the help of US Census data, you can use an online Distance Calculator.
Simply enter the latitude and longitude of the sightings and the Calculator
will electronically calculate the distance between them.
Try
this example: plug in these coordinates
FROM:
41.46N 74.72W
(Lat/Long of Winter territory)
TO: 56.57N 67.53W
(Lat/Long of Nest)

Did you
get this answer?
EQUALS: 1093 miles (1758 km)
