## Problem

I would like to know how to get the **distance and bearing between 2 GPS points**.

I have researched on the haversine formula.

Someone told me that I could also find the bearing using the same data.

## Edit

Everything is working fine but the bearing doesn’t quite work right yet. The bearing outputs negative but should be between 0 – 360 degrees.

The set data should make the horizontal bearing `96.02166666666666`

and is:

```
Start point: 53.32055555555556 , -1.7297222222222221
Bearing: 96.02166666666666
Distance: 2 km
Destination point: 53.31861111111111, -1.6997222222222223
Final bearing: 96.04555555555555
```

Here is my new code:

```
from math import *
Aaltitude = 2000
Oppsite = 20000
lat1 = 53.32055555555556
lat2 = 53.31861111111111
lon1 = -1.7297222222222221
lon2 = -1.6997222222222223
lon1, lat1, lon2, lat2 = map(radians, [lon1, lat1, lon2, lat2])
dlon = lon2 - lon1
dlat = lat2 - lat1
a = sin(dlat/2)**2 + cos(lat1) * cos(lat2) * sin(dlon/2)**2
c = 2 * atan2(sqrt(a), sqrt(1-a))
Base = 6371 * c
Bearing =atan2(cos(lat1)*sin(lat2)-sin(lat1)*cos(lat2)*cos(lon2-lon1), sin(lon2-lon1)*cos(lat2))
Bearing = degrees(Bearing)
print ""
print ""
print "--------------------"
print "Horizontal Distance:"
print Base
print "--------------------"
print "Bearing:"
print Bearing
print "--------------------"
Base2 = Base * 1000
distance = Base * 2 + Oppsite * 2 / 2
Caltitude = Oppsite - Aaltitude
a = Oppsite/Base
b = atan(a)
c = degrees(b)
distance = distance / 1000
print "The degree of vertical angle is:"
print c
print "--------------------"
print "The distance between the Balloon GPS and the Antenna GPS is:"
print distance
print "--------------------"
