Plugin: Map distance measure tool

Fri Jun 29, 2012 7:52 pm

Measure distances on the map.
GpsGate Server 3.0

This plugin enables you to measure distances on the map using a "ruler" tool.

How to install
1. Login to SiteAdmin.
2. Go to Plugins.
3. Set the "Repository URL" to labsupdate.gpsgate.com
4. Click on "Get More Plugins".
5. Download and install "Map Measure Tool".
6. Go to the application management page for the app that you want to enable it for.
7. Enable/Disable Features -> Plugins -> "Map Measure Tool".

Please make sure you have the latest Core and Patch.3275 also

Usage
Click the "ruler"-icon in the map toolbar. When clicking on the map
you can now draw a polyline click-by-click, the length is displayed in a popup window (using three scales of measures).
You end editing by double-clicking. Right-click will remove the last drawn point.
By specifying a speed the travel time for the current distance is calculated.
The measure line will be removed when closing the measure window or if clicking the map "swipe" tool button.

Note that this is a labs plugin. Please test it and give us feedback!

Note! This plugin does not support Internet Explorer.

It a good feature to measure distant between two place. We must draw correctly in order to calculate, if not we must redraw again. It take time to redraw if long distant.
I suggest the tool could be able to undo step back to place that draw wrong then continue draw forward or another method it should be able to edit the poly-line that finished drawing to the correct one.

Thanks
Best regards

I'd like to see a function that would allow me to click on two tracked points and be shown the distance travelled between them.
I know that it can be done with reporting, but a simple right click on a drawn track would be much quicker.

Yes I see same Piter197.
1.6km -> 0.2Mile, and I suggest it should have 2 decimal point.

Thanks

"Mil" is actually a "Scandinavian mil", which is 10 km. If you want "English miles" you need change the Measurement on the application to "en-us".

But I agree to include "Scandinavian mil" is only confusing, since it is not widely used.

There are 3 measure unit on plugin:
-Meter
-Kilometer
-Mil
What I mean is to change from "Mil" to "Miles" or add one more "Miles".

Thanks

Having too many measurements being displayed just makes the window too big. You could probably combine "m" and "km" by starting with "m" and then displaying "km" once more than 1000 m.
Other units should only be enabled if they are enabled in the Application

@guytracker

Absolutely I vote for you, moreover 'KM' is most usage term in the world.

We've now released an updated version 3.0.0.3478, it includes delete functionality, time estimate and drops the "Scandinavian mil" by default (top post is updated with new instructions).

You'll find the update log here: http://forum.gpsgate.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14731

Thanks for testing!
