I am trying to find the distance (km) between all the points (localities) in a shapefile using the  point distance tool but I always obtain what I believe are decimal degrees not linear distances. I generated the .shp from lat/long data (in acces file). When I created this I selected GCS_WGS_1984 as geographic coordinate system. I have projected the sph. but with the same results, only decimal degrees.
