Geodist module#

The geodist module calculates the distance between two locations. By default, it gives its result in kilometers, but different units can be selected via the -u flag.


geodist [-u <unit>] (loc1 loc2 [as output])...

Supported Options#

  • -u <unit>: select a different unit. Defaults to “km”, but “mi” (miles), “m” (meters), and “nmi” (nautical miles) are also valid.


This query charts the average distance, in miles, between source and destination in Zeek connection logs:
