Hi Frendz,
I have a latitude and longitude points of particular place namely X. Now I want to check the given latitude and longitude point of a place namely Y is within a circumstance of a particular radius from that point X. How to check that? i'm using google map.

1. count distance between x and y point.
2. check wheather it is less than radious (y is inside)
it is greater than radious (y is outside)

1. count distance between x and y point.

Thanks for your reply. I'll try and inform about the result

Yes.. Its soved using the following code

\$lat1=mysql_result(\$rs_area,0,"lat");
\$lon1=mysql_result(\$rs_area,0,"lng");
\$distance=mysql_result(\$rs_area,0,"radius");

\$lat2=\$row['latitude'];
\$lon2=\$row['longitude'];
\$R = 6371; // Radius of the earth in km
\$dLat = deg2rad(\$lat2-\$lat1);  // Javascript functions in radians
\$dLon = deg2rad(\$lon2-\$lon1);
\$a = sin(\$dLat/2) * sin(\$dLat/2) +
cos(deg2rad(\$lat1)) * cos(deg2rad(\$lat2)) *
sin(\$dLon/2) * sin(\$dLon/2);
\$c = 2 * atan2(sqrt(\$a), sqrt(1-\$a));
\$d = \$R * \$c; // Distance in km
