User Guide / Using the measurement tool

Using the measurement tool

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the following steps: 

  • Viewing total distance and size measurements for a markup
  • Viewing elevation changes along your markup


Once you have created a markup (point, line, or polygon), you are able to also see the associated distance/perimeter and area.

Viewing Distance Measurements

Once you’ve added a markup, select it by clicking on the name you have assigned to it in the layers menu. You can change the measurement units by clicking on the downward arrow beside the number.
