Excel Straight Line Distance Calculator
The Excel Straight Line Distance Calculator is an excel based distance calculator that allows the user to generate Straight Line Results (aka as-the-crow-flies or air miles) of a large list of addresses, zip codes, cities or geocodes. It allows the user to save tremendous amount of time by automating the calculation of straight line distances for a large list of addresses, up to tens of thousands of address or zip code combinations!
It allows the user to calculate straight line (as the crow flies) distances directly into excel. Some of the benefits are:
The Excel Straight Line Distance Calculator is the easiest-to-use tool of its kind. You can get your "Straight Line" or "Air Miles" Distances directly in Excel in three easy steps. See below on how it works:
Step 1 Paste the data (list of address combinations) in the excel tool.
Step 2 Click the “Calculate” button.
Step 3 That’s it! - Watch the tool generate the straight line distance directly in the spreadsheet!
While the "Excel Straight Line Distance Calculator" works on some version of Mac Computers, I currently do not offer support for Macs. As Macs use different VBA libraries, that can cause some conflicts with some of the functions in this tool.
All of our tools use the Google Maps API to generate results. This allows for accurate driving distance and time results and fast data. I have included some instructions on how to get a google maps API and what services to enable. Click here for more information on how to setup the Google Maps API Key.
You don't need to be a developer to setup a google maps api key. It takes about 5 minutes, and it is a simple as setting up an account with Google.
