This section refers to measurement tools for vertical imagery. Please refer to Measure Oblique Imagery for line and area tools.

With the vertical measurement tools, you can:

- Measure the length of a straight line and the length of a path composed of multiple lines, and choose whether to view the elevation profile for the line or path
- Draw a polygon on the map and measure its area and the length of its sides
- Draw a circle on the map and measure its area and radius

In each of the measurement tools you can choose:

- The units of measurement
- The colour of the line/area
- The brightness of the line/area
- The opacity of the area of a polygon/circle
- Whether to display or hide the measurement labels

This guide explains how to use the tools in a web browser and on tablet devices.

Note: MapBrowser's measurement tools use appropriate local representations of the Earth's surface and are typically accurate to +/- 15 cm for distances up to 200 m.

# Measuring Using a Web Browser

## Line

Measure the length of an object or path using the line tool:

## Area

Measure the area of an object or space:

## Radius

Find the area, radius, diameter, and circumference of a circle:

Nearmap's Oblique imagery provides an easy way to accurately measure areas, heights and slopes. Find out more: MB - Measure Oblique Imagery.

# Measuring on Tablet Devices

You can measure Vertical imagery on tablets using our Line, Area and Radius tools. You can also easily add text annotations using the Text tool.

- To start measuring, tap the first point you want to measure from:

## Adjusting a Measurement

To adjust a measurement touch any point along the line, area, or radius, and drag to a new position.
