Get latitude/longitude coordinates for NSWE corners from a center point 800ft from

    Get latitude/longitude coordinates for NSWE corners from a center point 800ft out to each NSWE corner.

    For example lets say I have:

    Latitude: 43.953282
    Longitude: -123.991699

    The above would be considered my center point.

    And now I need to determine the latitude and longitude points from center point 800ft outward to each NSWE corners. So I would have a central long/lat, N, S, E and W long/lat..

    So I would end up with 4 additional lat/long pairs.

    What I am trying to resolve is a formula, preferably that can be done on a standard calculator to determine these 4 NSWE points based on the central point.
