That depends what you mean by 'distance'. Distance can be the shortest path on the earth, much like a plane or a ship would use. You have many such calculators already like this.

The other way to define distance is the shortest path along roads. This is a much more difficult task since you would have to calculate the route to take. You can find these to like this.

Hi Gnonthgol,

Thanks for the reply. I want both Road distance as well as air distance between the location. I want user to give location name instead of lat and lang. Do you have any example fulling the above criteria then please share with me.

Thanks, Vivek

For the geodesic distance (as a plane or ship travels) you can use http://dist.petschge.de
