# [closed] Interesting Questions on Geometry on Earth

 0 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. Thanks! asked 10 Dec '16, 06:08 Wetitpig0 307●16●19●28 accept rate: 10% Frederik Ramm ♦ 82.5k●92●720●1273
