    Re: Calculate new coordinates given bearing and distance?

    Samuel,

    Here are my two cents on great-circle sailings. The drawing and data preset in the spreadsheet are based on Bowditch (2004 revised PDF version), p. 348.

    Inputs are green with italics font, outputs are blue/cyan with regular font.

    Adopted sign convention: north latitudes and east longitudes are positive, south latitudes and west longitudes are negative.
