[STC003514] In spite of what the globe in your classroom might lead you to believe, the Earth is not entirely spherical. As a result, determining the distance between two points is not necessarily a cut-and-dried process. The Vicenty technique is a mathematical equation that is used to compute distances on ellipsoidal models of the Earth. This is where it comes into play. On the basis of this equation, it is commonly accepted that Rosario and Xinghua are the two cities on Earth with populations of over 100,000 that are located the farthest away from one another. This pair of cities will, alas, never be close to one another because there is a distance of 19,996 kilometers separating them.
