I am wanting to find the distance between two different points. This I know can be accomplished with the great circle distance.

Once done, with a point and distance I would like to find the point that distance north, and that distance east in order to create a box around the point.

## Best Solution

Here is a Java implementation of Haversine formula. I use this in a project to calculate distance in miles between lat/longs.
