Hello,
 
i need to calculate the latitude and longitude of a point if i have :
 
1) the lattitude and longitude of a known point
 
2)the distance from the known point in km.
 
3) and the direction from the known point in degrees.
 
What i want to calculate is if i have a boat in position x1,y1 that is moving z degrees with x speed , what will the position of boat be after 30 minutes?
 
I would much apreciate if someone provide me code in C# (or any other language that i could transfer to c#)
 
thanks !
