# Length of sea mile

The sea mile is the distance of one minute of arc of latitude at a given (current) latitude and along the current meridian. Because the Earth is not a true sphere, one minute of latitude arc on pole differs from one minute latitude arc near the equator. This calculator evaluates length of sea mile at a given latitude.
