GeoLength

GeoLength[g]

gives the length of the geo path g.

Details and Options

• The path g in GeoLength[g] can be any one-dimensional geo primitive, such as GeoPath, GeoCircle, or GeoVisibleRegionBoundary.
• GeoLength[GeoPath[{p1,p2,}]] computes the length of the path formed by geodesic segments joining the locations pi.
• JoinedCurve and GeoGroup can be used to combine multiple paths.
• GeoLength[g] returns a Quantity object with units of length.
• GeoLength[{g1,g2,}] gives {GeoLength[g1],GeoLength[g2],}.
• Possible options of GeoLength include:
•  GeoModel Automatic model of the Earth or celestial body UnitSystem \$UnitSystem unit system to use in the result
