Azimuth/Distance calculator - by Don Cross

Given the latitude, longitude, and elevation of two points on the Earth, this calculator determines the azimuth (compass direction) and distance of the second point (B) as seen from the first point (A).

See also: Latitude/Longitude Calculator. That page performs the inverse calculation: it figures out the coordinates of a target point, given the coordinates of an origin point, an azimuth, and a distance.
