Subject: [Boost-users] [Geometry] Calculating distances on the earth
From: Sean Farrow (sean.farrow_at_[hidden])

Hi all:
I need to calculate distances on the earth. Ideally I'd like to use the haversine formula.
There is an example in the docs at:
under the non-Cartesian heading.
Will this do what I need, or do I need the Geographical coordinate system, (if yes where is this available and what features does this supply?)
Any help appreciated.
