So at 29º-30º N. latitude, the value of each degree of longitude and part thereof is 1 degree of longitude equals 52.296 nautical miles or 60.181 statute miles; 1 minute of longitude equals .8716 nautical miles or 1.003 statute miles. North Central Florida is approx 25-30 deg N Latitude so each second approximates 1 'regular' mile. Makes it easier to figure distances given lat/long on maps from where I am....
