Measure (Cumulative Distance)

The Measure Cumulative Distance command allows you to measure along a polyline. Measure parameters include the length of the entire polyline, the length of each line segment, and the angle of each line segment. The angle corresponds to the orientation of the line segment (North: 0°, East: 90°, South: 180°, West: 270°). One example of use would be to measure a river. In combination with the snapping tools (see also Snapping) located on the bottom-right of the user interface, you can achieve precise mesurement results:
|Snap from vertex to vertex||The cumulative distance of the river depicted on the map|
To snap to a point, hover the mouse over the designated feature until the brown cross symbols appear. Those crosses correspond to the respective vertices of the feature. Move the circular-shaped mouse cursor over the starting point of the polyline, and then click on the vertex to set the starting point of the polyline. Snap to the next vertex, and click again to set the next point. Repeat this process until you have reached the end point, and double click on the point to finalize the polyline measure element. To increase the usability of the GeoMedia Smart Client the perimeter of the measured polyline is shown at the end of the line (orhogonal to the line).
