Are you planning a road trip or looking for the best route to your destination? Or maybe you want to calculate the exact distance between two points on the map. Well, Google Maps is here to help! With its advanced features and user-friendly interface, measuring distances has become easier than ever. In this blog post, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of measuring distances on Google Maps both on your computer and mobile device. Plus, we’ll show you how to calculate square feet or meters using Google Maps. So let’s get started!
How to measure distance in Google Maps on your computer
Measuring distance on Google Maps on your computer is a simple process. First, open the Google Maps website and navigate to the area you want to measure. Right-click anywhere on the map and select “Measure Distance” from the menu that appears.
Next, click on two points on the map to create a path between them. The total distance will appear in both miles and kilometers at the bottom of your screen. You can add more points by clicking along your chosen route.
If you want to change or delete any of these points, simply click and drag them wherever you like. You can also switch between different units of measurement by selecting “Miles,” “Kilometers,” or “Feet” from the drop-down menu located next to each measured distance.
If you want to save this information for future reference or share it with someone else, click “Add Line” beneath your measurement data box and give it a name before saving it in your Google Drive account.
How to measure distance in Google Maps on iPhone or Android
Measuring distances on Google Maps is not limited to desktop users only, but mobile phone users can also measure the distance between two points using their iPhone or Android device. Here’s how:
First, open the Google Maps app and tap on the map to pick a starting point. Next, hold your finger down on that location until a red pin appears. Then move the map so that you see the second location you want to measure and place another pin there.
After placing both pins, swipe up from the bottom of your screen to bring up more options including “Measure Distance”. Tap this option and you will see a line connecting both pins with an updated measurement of distance in miles or kilometers at the bottom of your screen.
To add another point along your route before measuring its total length, simply press once again wherever you’d like to include it on your route. You may save this measurement by clicking ‘Save’ after naming it whatever suits best for later reference.
Measuring distance has never been easier; just use these simple steps when using Google Maps on either iOS or Android devices!
Calculate square feet or meters on Google Maps
Calculating the square footage or meters of an area on Google Maps can be incredibly useful for a variety of purposes, from planning out landscaping projects to determining the size of a new building. Fortunately, this process is also straightforward and easy to do.
To calculate square feet or meters on Google Maps, start by zooming in on the area you want to measure. Then right-click and select “Measure Distance” from the menu. Click once at each corner or change in direction around the perimeter of your desired area until you have traced out its shape completely.
Next, click on “Add Area” and then click on each point again, following along with your original path. This will close off your polygon and display its total measurement in both metric (square meters) and imperial (square feet) units.
With these simple steps, measuring distance and calculating square footage/meters become much easier using Google Maps whether it’s through your computer or phone device!
