I recently had an issue where I had to rework a page which already hat exisiting Mappress Maps.

What I needed there was the geocoordinates in order to calculate distances to other points

In case you need it here a the formulas for this

```
$maps = Mappress_Map::get_post_map_list($post->ID);
//Get first map
if (is_array($maps) && isset($maps[0]))
{
$lat = $maps[0]->pois[0]->point['lat'];
$lng = $maps[0]->pois[0]->point['lng'];
}
```

Calculating distance

```
function distance($lat1, $lng1, $lat2, $lng2, $miles = true)
{
$pi80 = M_PI / 180;
$lat1 *= $pi80;
$lng1 *= $pi80;
$lat2 *= $pi80;
$lng2 *= $pi80;
$r = 6372.797; // mean radius of Earth in km
$dlat = $lat2 - $lat1;
$dlng = $lng2 - $lng1;
$a = sin($dlat / 2) * sin($dlat / 2) + cos($lat1) * cos($lat2) * sin($dlng / 2) * sin($dlng / 2);
$c = 2 * atan2(sqrt($a), sqrt(1 - $a));
$km = $r * $c;
return ($miles ? ($km * 0.621371192) : $km);
}
```

calling function

`echo round(distance($lat, $lng, 48.3534693, 11.7811621, false), 2).' Kilometers';`

Hope this helps others!
