What is the correct way to determine the direction of Qibla?

If I give "San Francisco" as origin in this site, the direction can be East or North, based on whether I choose "Constant Compass" or "Shortest Distance" option

Where are the direction of qibla of mosques in San Francisco?

According to the below Fatwa from Imam Khamenei (Ayatollah Khamenei) the shortest distance should be chosen and if there is a point that different directions have the same distance then he is free to choose any direction he wishes.
