Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Good evening guys,

Suppose I have a point on map (latitude, longitude), I would like to determine the distance from a region of the same map (for example a rectangle with four lat-lon vertices or a shape with lat,lon center point and radius) how can do that? There is some formula or some plugin that allows me to do it in java?

Thanks a lot

I recommend to ask such a general GIS question at a better place:

Yes, this question is unsuitable for the OSM help site. You might want to use the JTS library but GIS stackexchange is the way to go.
