Abstract

The target audience for this scientific paper's writing is anyone who is interested in the statistical information that will be used to create a method for determining the separation between two coordinate points. Given that as technology advances, a growing number of applications will make use of geolocation data for economic purposes, such as processing location data to maximize product sales. The development of satellite constellations, coordinate arrangements and even more sophisticated tasks like the construction of a space station require a high degree of accuracy. These are not just economic problems. However, no one is certain at this time of the precise calculation of the separation between the two coordinate points. The Haversine method and the Vincenty method are two of the several techniques used today to calculate coordinates. Each approach yields, naturally, different outcomes due to its basic differences. The variation in the results is anticipated to serve as a database for future study into the creation of new techniques to measure the distance between two coordinates at the point of the earth and to determine the size of the earth with a more precise value. However, if the application needs to calculate longer distances with higher accuracy, the Vincenty method may be more appropriate.
