# Calculate distance between two markers.

We are trying to calculate the distance between two markers plotted in our map. We tried using the Polyline object but that returns a straight line from one marker to the other, not the real distance, or route. Is there a way to do so? We are using the following function...

```function sitepins(val) {
var iconPath  = "M15.834,29.084 15.834,16.166 2.917,16.166 29.083,2.917z";
var initColor = "#005CE6";
var ind=0;
for (var index = 0; index < arr.length; index++){
if (arr[index]==val){
ind =index;
}

Lon = arr[ind+1];
Lat = arr[ind+2];
Lon1 = arr[ind+4];
Lat1 = arr[ind+5];
//var polylineJson = {"paths":[[[-122.68,45.53], [-122.58,45.55]]]};
var singlePathPolyline = new Polyline([[-50, 0], [-120, -20], [-130, 0]]);
//var polyline = new Polyline(polylineJson);
var lengths = geodesicUtils.geodesicLengths([singlePathPolyline], Units.KILOMETERS);
console.log(lengths);

}
```
