The function defaults to sensible default values for tol and rel.</p> <p>For any other pair of objects, approx_equal() looks for a method __approx_equal__ and, if found, calls it with arbitrary optional arguments. This allows types to define their own concept of "close enough".</p> Calculate distance from .kmz files (Python) 2009-05-31T23:59:34-07:00Michal Niklashttp://code.activestate.com/recipes/users/186902/http://code.activestate.com/recipes/576782-calculate-distance-from-kmz-files/ <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 576782 by <a href="/recipes/users/186902/">Michal Niklas</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/distance/">distance</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/geocoding/">geocoding</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/google_earth/">google_earth</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/kmz/">kmz</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/points/">points</a>).
