What can I measure?

Measure distances and areas in Map Measurement

Map Measurement uses lines and shapes to check one or several distances and estimate sizes of different features on Earth. With Map Measurement, you can measure the length on the ground with a line or path, you can also measure areas using polygons. You can measure several different measurements on one map.

Create a measurement

  1. Open Map Measurement.
  2. Navigate to a spot on the globe by zooming, or enter an address in the search field of your interest.
  3. Select the drawing method which you want to use(the latest used is already selected).
    • Line:the distance between two points on the map
    • Path:the distance between multiple points on the ground
    • Polygon:the distance or area of a geometric shape on the ground
  4. On the map, click a starting point for your measurement.
  5. Depending on figure type click until you have drawn the figure that you want to measure.
  6. End the drawing by right or double clicking or by selecting the end drawing label. Except for the line drawing which ends by the second point.
  7. You’ll see a line or shape on the globe that shows what you’re measuring.
