Getting To The Point - Find the Distances

In the box 'Your Start Point' enter your home address or postcode. In the box 'Your End Point' enter another address or postcode. Click 'Get to the point' below. The resultant map shows the crow flight (direct) and road route between the two points you have selected.

Be patient GeoCoding can take time, if there is an error simply refresh the page. Once the map appears you may zoom in/out and move your start and end point to get a more accurate reading or change your route. You can also pan the map by dragging it, just 'click and hold'.


If you require your data back please be sure the whole class enters the same unique school code. Without these details it may not be possible to return your data.

Click 'Submit' to send your data to the Royal Statistical Society Centre for Statistical Education (RSSCSE) database. The start and end point is only needed to find the route and straight line distances. The submitted data will be kept securely on the RSSCSE servers and used to create teaching resources. Any data requested by schools or colleges will have the postcodes/addresses (i.e. your home or school location) removed. The map feature of this resource is powered by the Google Maps API.
