The geodesy package provides interfaces to convert between lat/long and UTM coordinates in both C++ and Python. Once points are converted to UTM, you can use normal Euclidean distance calculations in meters.

It uses proj4 for the Python implementation, and handles conversion to and from the standard ROS sensor_msgs/NavSatFix.
