## Distance Calculation in Power BI

Hey,

I wanted to know that once I have plotted several locations on a map in Power BI, how can I calculate the distance between any two locations?

do you have LAT and LONG? If yes you can do it with math:

if not you need to custom call Bing Maps or Google Maps APIs for that

@Anam

You need Latitude and Longitude to calculate the distance between two locations with following formula:

=acos(sin(lat1)*sin(lat2)+cos(lat1)*cos(lat2)*cos(lon2-lon1))*6371

ps: 6371 is Earth radius in km.

You can achieve it via either Power Query or DAX method.

Or you can use Google Map API as @cs_skit suggested.

I did a blog post on calculating the direct line distance between two points in DAX
