## About Slope Distance Calculator (Formula)

The Slope Distance Calculator employs the Pythagorean theorem to determine the distance along a slope:

**$Slope Distance (SD)=Rise (Ri)+Run (Ru) $**

Where:

- Slope Distance (SD) represents the direct distance along the slope.
- Rise (Ri) is the vertical distance from the starting point to the ending point of the slope.
- Run (Ru) is the horizontal distance from the starting point to the ending point of the slope.

This calculation is particularly useful in various fields, such as engineering, construction, and landscaping, to measure the actual distance traveled along a slope rather than the straight-line distance.
