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

With the measurement tools, you can:

  • Measure the length of a straight line
  • Measure the length of a path composed of multiple lines
  • 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

Here's an example using the Line tool.

  1. From the Toolbar, click Measure.
  2. Select Line
  3. Click once on the map to place the starting point of your line.
  4. Click a second time on the map to place the endpoint of your line.
  5. Check Show inline measurements to display measurements on the map.
  6. Click the Units dropdown to change the units to feet, miles, etc.
  7. Click inside the Line color text box to select a different color for your measurement line.

  • The length and bearing of the line you placed on the map are displayed in the Line measurement tool panel. These values update each time you place a new line on the map.
  • You can repeat the process as many times as you want. If you close the Line panel to resume panning and zooming, the measurement lines you placed will remain visible.
  • You can re-open the Line panel for any line you placed on the map by clicking and selecting it.
  • To reposition an existing line, simply click and drag the starting and ending control points; the measurement will update automatically.
  • To delete one measurement object, select it, then click the trash can icon.
  • To delete all measurement objects, click Clear.
  • No labels
