What is 'DistToMAV' in the Flight Data page?

I'm new to UAVs and the DIY Drones, so apologies if this isn't the best forum for this topic, but can anyone explain what 'DistToMAV' is on the Flight Data page?

I couldn't find the answer on the Flight Data Wiki (http://planner.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-mission-planner-ground-control-station/).

Thanks, Andy
