How to draw Places
Sometimes it may be necessary to create a measurement that can be stored for later use, such as in a printed map. This can be done using the Draw places tools.
Zoom to a location on the map where you wish to add measurements
Click Tools → Draw Places → Draw (choose point, rectangle, line, polygon, or circle)
Draw your selected shape, noting the dimensions dynamically updating at the bottom left of the maps as the shape is drawn.
Click Places → Select your new shape → Click down arrow (chevron) → Attributes
Review the dimensions in the attribute list. These will vary depending on the type of object drawn.
If you wish to add a label with your measurement to the map, find the required measurement (e.g. area or length) in the attributes. Highlight → Right click → Copy
Go to Name and paste the copied measurement.
Click Add Label to Map checkbox. Adjust the settings as desired.
Confirm area measurement is visible on the map.
How to create an elevation profile
You can show the elevation profile along a drawn line, using the terrain available in 3D view (on 3D compatible devices).
To display the terrain profile, first ensure you are in 3D mode by clicking on the 3D icon at the bottom left of the map.
Then Select the Draw line tool and draw a line on the map at the required location for your profile.
Your newly created line is stored in Places. Click the Places button to reveal the Places panel, then click the down arrow next to your new line (called My Place 1 in this example). Then click Show profile using surface terrain.
View the profile. This is the elevation profile along the line you drew; elevation values are taken from the base terrain dataset in the application.
Click and drag the point to move along the length of your line.
