What is a Distance Calculator?

Measure Straight-Line Distance - Distance Calculator Tool

A distance calculator measures the straight line distance between various points on a map. This is different from a driving distance or travel time calculation. Calculate the distance between physical addresses, major cities, or any other point you select on the map.

Maptive’s distance calculator gives you the option to measure the distance between two addresses or the continuous distance between multiple points.
