Measurement Mode

source:applications/editors/josm/plugins/measurement/images/mapmode/measurement.png in OpenStreetMap Trac

This mode is to draw a path on the Measurement layer for measuring lengths.

It is the working mode of the Measurement plugin registered in the Edit toolbar and the Mode menu.

In Measurement mode the mouse pointer changes to a crosshair.

Click on the start point and go on with the next points of the path to be measured. A measurement layer is opened upon the first click and line segments are shown between the points of the path. Rightclick removes the last point of the path. The length of the path is shown in the source:applications/editors/josm/plugins/measurement/images/measurement.png in OpenStreetMap Trac Measured values panel.

To create a path from a GPS track as path use Import path from GPX layer in the context menu of the Measure Path layer.
