    create an objet 10 meters in front of my car

    Hello

    I have to create an bjet 10 meters in front of my car with the same angle and direction.
    I see that we can calculate the distance between two objet if we have their latitude and longitude, can we do the opposite operation : calculate the latitude and the longitude of a new objet 10 meters in front of my car
    with the same dirction and angle if we have the latitude and the logitude of my car.

    thanks for all

    i think you should be able to do this by just using math on the lat and long. Not sure exactly how the algorithm would go. gotta brush up on some trig and the lat/long conversion to distance.

    i gotta ask.. why do you need to do this?
