Surface Coordinates (Lat/Long) to Distance Calculator

Have you ever wondered how far and long you would have to drive a rover to get from one place to another? Maybe you're planning a Science rover expedition, or maybe you want to place a base within driving distance of other bases or new Science biomes. Either way, here's a simple spreadsheet that calculates distance between two points on any planet/moon in KSP:

Make a copy of the sheet and you'll be free to make your own calculations between any two points on a planet or moon in KSP. All landed crafts will show their coordinates if you hover over them in map view. 

Note: The spreadsheet doesn't account for hills or elevation on planets. Coordinates must be in decimal format, so 2* 25' 48" N 17* 22' 40" E would look like 2.2548 and 17.2240, while 2* 25' 48" S 17* 22' 40" W would look like -2.2548 and -17.2240.

Enjoy!
