Heres a quick little tool to calculate distances between points on the earth in km by providing longitude / latitude. It also calculates the number of minutes it would take a sound to travel from one location to the other if there was no decay.

For example if someone were to clap in London, it would take ~117 minutes before it would be heard in Athens if it were still audible.

There are similar tools online but this will act as a handy function for those involved in the upcoming Send a Message networked installation piece this April, where all of their preferences can be set within the Max applet.
