I have the coordinates for a starting point, namely:



      37 degrees 23 minutes 11.00 seconds North and 79 degrees 44

      minutes 13.72 seconds West



      I wish to travel a distance of 21021 feet at a bearing of 24

      degrees from north, and to know the new coordinates of that terminal point. 



      Thank you.

I should have added that the degree of precision implied by the starting coordinates is not necessary. Anything within 50 feet would suffice if that helps.

I discovered I could do that with Google Earth, well enough

for my requirement. No further reply necessary.
