Fast haversine

The fastest implementation of the haversine algorithm to calculate distances between to coordinates.

Install

npm install fast-haversine

Basic usage

Given two coordinates, i.e. departure and arrival of a infamous helicopter trip, calculate the distance in meters:

const distance = require('fast-haversine');
 
const from = { lat: -34.607814, lon: -58.370301 };
const to = { lat: -34.5161001, lon: -58.4847728 };
 
distance(from, to); // quickly returns 14640 m

API

distance(from, to)

Calculates the distance between the to given coordinates.

The coordinates are objects containing lat and lon properties.

Returns a number representing the distance in meters.

Benchmarks

Like benchmarks? Then run npm run benchmark. Current results are:

$ npm run benchmark
