Valley Mountain Peak


You can measure slopes, distances and heights on your drone survey with the measurement tools. The measurement tools are available through the in the Measure group of the Analysis tab.



The Slope button allows you to measure the slope, the height and the 2D distance between two points.

The Distance button allows you to measure 3D distances.

The Height button allows you to measure a vertical distance between two points.


Quick Guide

Slope

  1. Enable the Slope button.
  2. Click once to set the starting point (e.g. top of bank).
  3. Then the preview mode gives you the horizontal and vertical distances and the slope between the starting point and the current cursor position.
  4. Move the cursor to the other side of the slope you want to assess (e.g. bottom of the bank).
  5. Click to complete the measurement.
  6. The slope annotation is created.



Distance

  1. Enable the Distance button.
  2. Click once to set the starting point (e.g start of the road center line).
  3. Then the preview mode gives you the 3D distance between the starting point and the current cursor position.
  4. Click all the points of the line you want to measure (e.g. beginning of road curve).
  5. Click to complete the measurement.
  6. The Distance annotation is created.


Height

  1. Enable the Height button.
  2. Click once to set the starting point (e.g ground).
  3. Then the preview mode gives you the height between the starting point and the current cursor position.
  4. Move the cursor above the object you want to assess the height of (e.g. top of the roof).
  5. Click to complete the measurement.
  6. The Height annotation is created.


Tips and Tricks

  • By selecting a measurement annotation, an¬†information box displays. That box contains all the measurements information about the selected item. You can copy these information in the clipboard to create a report.
  • For distance item, the information box includes the following details : 2D/3D distances, slope and azimuth between the first and the last point of the line.
