Is there a better way to get a reasonably canon distance between two points on Golarion for Teleportation or other purposes besides hand measuring an official map?

What is the best measurement tool for Golarion that is currently available?

The inspiration for this post is the Teleport spell specifically, and the desire to know if something is within 100 miles, or 1000 miles for the purposes of spell preparation, but it would also be great to know for other means of overland/sea travel.

Is there some way to ask "Can a teleport spell of this level reach from here to there?" and get an answer in a matter of moments rather than having to take a break and figure it out?

How far is it from Otari to Escadar? From Absalom to Nantambu? From Mechitar to Nerosyan? From Magnimar to Isarn?

This website is my current go-to.

Its the product of some dedicated mapmaking by community members.

Worth noting the Interactive Map hasn't been updated since 2e and wasn't even complete with 1e sources; there's nothing in Arcadia, very little in Tian Xia, and you run into stuff like Sargava still existing or Holomog not being labeled.

Dungeonetics: Golarion Geography
There's also this.

Additionally I used this site to make a globe version of the world map, and the site allows distance measuring, though that'll be harder for accurate smaller distances since it's a full globe.
