I have a couple of lat/long points that I have calculated a distance between and would like to confirm it. If someone could see if their calculations agree with mine it would be appreciated.

 

Pt 1
Lat: N 30 deg 38' 58.65506"
Long: W 87 deg 54' 12.62303"

 

Pt 2
Lat: N 31 deg 08' 55.14513"
Long: W 87 deg 04' 30.82570"

 

Distance: 316907 feet, 60.02 miles
