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

Everyone knows that Earth is not flat in nature. Therefore, Cartesian Coordinate Plane (Rectangular Coordinate Plane) formulae are not suitable for coordinate geometry on OSM.

May I ask how to calculate the following 3 items: 1. Distance between 2 points and their bearing. 2. The coordinates of a point from a point with given distance and bearing. 3. The coordinates of the intersection point of any 2 lines.

These questions are not OpenStreetMap specific and answers can easily be found with search engines (or, failing that, on gis.stackexchange.com).
