Measuring distance between two points that are in different utm zones

Discussion created by mselebatso on May 31, 2014
Hello

I have movement data for wildlife in decimal degrees, but I need to measure the distance (displacement) between consecutive points. I have tried converting the data to UTM for easier distance calculation. Unfortunately my data crosses between two utm zones and calculations are impossible between the points that are different zones. Is there a way around this method?
