There was a recent inquiry about finding the distance between two coordinates. Here's a handy site to do just that.

Happy caching

I always use this small free versatile utility that you can download.

GeoCalc also does high-accuracy distance calculations and projections using the Vincenty method for calculating distances on an ellipsoid. These calculations are much better than you can obtain from your GPS unit or most other software out there.

It also does conversion to other formats, projections and several other things.
