    lat & long calcs

    There is a flaw with the fact that degrees of longitude is constant. While it is true that distance latitudes is constant it not constant for longitude. Lines of longitude emit from the poles and therefore the distance between lines of latitude at the poles is very close. At the equator the distance is extreamly greater than the poles.
