How far is it?

I’ve always been fascinated with those center-of-the-world type sign posts that tell you how far it is from where you are to various distant places.

I just made a fun little tool so that anybody can do the calculations needed to create one.

It’s fairly straight forward to use. The input fields accept most formats used for geo-coordinates (including those given by your GPS). Alternatively you can pick from a list of major cities around the world.

If your city is not listed and you don’t know your location, you might be able to find your coordinates by looking up your town in Wikipedia.

Any feedback is welcomed.

Enjoy!
