October 19, 2013

If location of two places could be pointed out in Google maps by words(Chittagong, Bangladesh)  or using visual aid(clicking in the map), there are websites or Google map itself could measure the distance. In most countries, official fare in bus,train,plane,taxicab, autorickshaws  etc are calculated according to distance. So if distance is known, official fare could be calculated.
