Here's a new tool similar to the one for calculating the distance between zip codes, except this one calculates both the straight line distance and the driving or route distance between lat/lon coordinates.

It's pretty self-explanatory, take a look and let us know how it works for you!

Note that the Road distance returned will be either km or miles depending on your current map units setting in MapPoint. The straight line distance is always miles, but you could do an easy conversion if you need km.

1 kilometer = 0.621371192 miles
