Map Measurement ToolΒΆ

The 2D measurement tool allows users to measure distances and areas by drawing lines and polygons over the 2D map.

  1. Click the Map Measurement Tool icon on the main toolbar.
  2. Use the L (length) and A (area) icons to switch between Linear and Area measurement modes. The appropriate units will be displayed in the adjacent dropdown in each mode. As different units are selected, they will be updated within the window.
  3. Using the cursor, draw a line or polygon to determine the measurement needed.
  4. Click the X button to clear accumulated measurements and start over.


Multiple consecutive measurements will be summed in the sum field until measurements are cleared using the X button.
