Use this tool to measure distances between any drawn route on the map - whether it be between two points or many more. You can save your calculation and re-visit it later with a permanent link that is shareable.
So, if the question is how far is something from somewhere? Then you found the right tool! There are better tools out there to calculate driving directions, or when using another mode of transport but for custom routes or just measuring distances this map distance calculator will provide the result you are looking for.
Note. GPS coordinates entered into the search bar should be comma separated e.g. 51.555,0.555
