Google Maps Can Now Measure Distance Between Multiple Points

Google Maps Can Now Measure Distance Between Multiple Points
Google on Wednesday has rolled out a new update for Maps for desktop/ Web that will allow users to measure distance between multiple points on the map.

The updated Google Maps service with the new feature has been rolled-out globally. Earlier this feature was available under the experimental Google Labs options only.

With the new Google Maps for desktop, users can right click on the starting point and select Measure Distance between two or more points or can also click anywhere on the map to create a path that needs to be measured. Similarly, users can further click to add additional measuring points. A point can be dragged anywhere, or it can be removed with another click on it.

"The new #GoogleMaps for desktop lets you click and drag to measure your next road trip, bike ride or run-even if you're taking a few sharp turns," wrote company in a Google+ post.

Users still utilising classic Google Maps will first need to turn on distance measurement by clicking on the Maps Labs link at the bottom of the left-hand panel. They can then click on the Enable button next to Distance Measurement Tool. To measure distance in classic Google Maps, users need to click on the ruler icon at the lower left-hand corner of the map. Then upon selecting upon a starting and ending points (and then clicking to add additional measuring points), the distance will be shown in the left panel.
