Finding Your Way With Map and Compass

How Far Is It? This service uses data from the US Census and a supplementary list of cities around the world to find the latitude and longitude of two places, and then calculates the distance between them (as the crow flies). It also provides a map showing the two places.

MapQuest provides a map of any place in the world!
