I am trying to get the distance in miles among a set of 100 points across the US. I am using the same file containing those points as my input and near dataset. The layer is in the GCS_WGS_1984 coordinate system. However, the output of my file gives values that range from 0 - 44 so I suppose these are decimal degrees. How can I produce a table with the values in miles?

Thank you
