Abstract

Tables are presented which facilitate the calculation of small distances between points on the earth's surface whose latitudes and longitudes are given, for mean latitudes from 30° to 40°. The error does not exceed one-tenth of a kilometer in 500 kilometers, and may be reduced by applying specified corrections.
