# How many feet

## Recommended Posts

If you have 106 19.637' and you move to 106 19.638' how many feet are you away from the first reading. Is there a web site that explains this.

Women are like guns, keep one around long enough and you're going to want to shoot it.

The answer to your question depends on the latitude. The number of feet in a degree of longitude varies with the latitude, becoming a smaller distance as you approach the poles. An approximation of feet in .001 minute of longitude can be made by this formula: cosine(latitiude) x 6 feet. In Wyoming its about 4.5 feet. Latitude is easier, its about 6 feet per .001 minute everywhere.

FWIW,

way OT.

I just looked at Markwell's FAQ!!!! Sure wish I had seen this during the first couple of weeks here. Would have saved me a lot of posts. Nice Job!!

Of course thats ignoring the HUGE error ( ) with the cactus in the triangulation section. But what the heck, not everyone had the privilage of growing up in the desert.

( the Saguaro cactus would NEVER grow that close to a stream and never at the same altitude as those trees. Unless of course the cactus is really a camoflaged cache. in that case I withdraw my comments )

in spite of my poor humor, its a job well done! thanks for all your hard work

Next time you head down there let me know and Ill make sure I have my happy valley cache placed before you get there. Its all ready I just need to either drive it down or send it down to a friend who is going to maintain it for me. It will be on the back side of the Rincon Mountains (the ones to the east)
