Sometimes, when working on the field the need to measure distance or areas becomes urgent, either to get an idea of the distance from our location to a certain object or to get the approximate dimensions of the geometries stored on our datasets. With the new map tool, now it is possible.
To start using this new tool, click on the menu and select the option called “Map Tools”. Once it is selected, a counter will be displayed at the top and two additional buttons will appear on the bottom left corner of your screen. One of them is used to select what needs to be measure, let this be a distance or an area, while the other one will clean the progress.
To start measuring, just draw points on the screen to form the plot. The distance or area values will be updated automatically.
How to change the type of measurement unit?
AmigoCollect allows you to switch between the metric or imperial system of units.
- On Android devices: from the main menu, select the option called "Units". Then, click on the button that is visible next to the word "units" to change the measurement unit.
- On iOS devices: from the main menu go to “Settings”, then click on “Unit measure”. From there we can choose any of the two types of units.
