The new measurement tool is available in the map view of your vector datasets. You will find the activation button of this tool on the upper right side of your screen, next to the geocode searcher.
To calculate a distance, you will have to draw to points. To do this, please use the cursor and click on the map to create the vertexes. Once it's finished, the distance will be shown both on the sketch and on the information box; this value will be displayed in metric and imperial units systems.
To facilitate the reading of the dimensions, the tool seems like a ruler.
To measure areas, create a drawing of at least three sides. Once you connect the last vertex to the first one, the value of the area of the drawing will be visible.
How to use the tool?
- To draw the path, click with the cursor to add vertexes.
- To modify a vertex, press on it and drag it.
- To delete a vertex, double click on it.
