    For 0.000001 degree changes in latitude, about 4.4 inches.
    
    For changes in longitude, it depends on your latitude. At the equator, a
    degree = about 69 miles, and answer is about 4.4 inches. One foot south of
    the north pole you can move a full 360 degrees and only travel 6.28 feet.
