Using the measurement tool allows you to accurately measure the distance in kilometres between two points on your map. 

It can also be used to measure an area.


  1. Click 'Tools' in the toolbar, located above the map window. 
  2. Select 'Measure' from the drop-down menu. 
  3. Click the location on the map you wish to begin measuring from. 
  4. Click on the map to add another point to your route.
  5. When you have completed your route, double left-click.
  6. The distance of your route should appear in the left window.

To measure an area, simply form a polygon by placing points around the boundary of the area you wish to measure, and note down your area from the left-hand window.
