Distance Tool allows for quick and easy calculations to find distances between points on a map, including area calculations for non-overlapping polygons drawn. Includes metric (meters, kilometers) and imperial units (yards, miles, feet for altitude) for distances. Co-ordinates can either be displayed in decimal or degrees, meters and seconds.

Functionality to drop a point at your current location (GPS or otherwise), and to email the results. Tap briefly to drop points anywhere on the map.

Share your drawing (shape) by email, which includes a file that can be opened on any device with Distance Tool, or by generating a URL that can be viewed by a desktop web browser. Manage your shared URLs to remove any that are no longer required.

Allows the standard map views of standard, satellite and hybrid.

Supports portrait and landscape orientations.

Supports quick altitude calculation without data connectivity. Find out how high up you are!

See the altitude of any point (data used).

Flashlight/torch ability (depending on device support).

Upgrade to support saving and loading of shapes (drawings), and freehand drawing: drop a pin and swipe to generate a path!
