# Calculation of constant azimuth and rhumb line length

Calculates the azimuth and the distance by two given coordinate points. Calculations are performed by rhumb line ( loxodrome). Obtained azimuth is a constant - rhumb line crosses all meridians at the same angle. The length of the loxodrome is not the shortest distance between two points.
