The values of Segment and Angle, which appear on the top-right of the mouse symbol when drawing a polygon line segment on the map, correspond to the length and orientation specification of the segment, respectively. When plotting a polygon line segment, there are basically two methods to specify the geographic location of each line segment:
Method 1: Mouse-Controlled
Click on a point on the map to start the polygon drawing mode. Then drag the mouse cursor to the end point of the polygon line segment, and click to clinch the line segment and (if necessary) to start drawing a new segment. Repeat the process until the polygon is complete, and double click to finalize the polygon.
Method 2: Capture window
You can also set the length and orientation of a polygon line segment in the Capture window.
There are two text boxes, Distance and Angle. Distance corresponds to the length of the polygon line segment, whereas Angle specifies the orientation of the line segment. The line segment can then be plotted at the orientation interval specified in the Angle text box. Type the corresponding values into the respective text box, and click on to turn it into . This locks the mouse-based positioning mode and causes the polygon line segment to be drawn according to the parameters in the construction aid.
An example of use would be the need to draw a right-angle triangle with exact side length and angle specifications:
The construction aid enables you to fulfill those requirements very easily by specifying the appropriate parameters.
