Distance Between

Distance Between

Overview

The zoho.map.distanceBetween task returns the flight distance between the specified source and destination addresses.

Note: Zoho Maps use open-source address data. Hence, accuracy might not be on par with commercial vendors.

Syntax

<response> = zoho.map.distanceBetween(<source_address>, <destination_address, <unit>);

where:

ParamsData typeDescription

NUMBER

<destination_address>

TEXT

The source address until which the flight distance needs to be calculated.

<unit>

TEXT

The unit in which the distance needs to be returned.

  • MILE
  • KILOMETRE

response = zoho.map.distanceBetween("Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India", "Austin, Texas, US", "MILE");
