Measure Distance Using Google Maps

I wish I had found this feature sooner. On Google Maps you can measure distances by adding points on a map. I needed it as have to do some live streaming and need a really long cable to connect to the router. I now know I need something at least 40 metres long.

However, this is great for planning routes and seeing how long that route is.

The other thing I use it for is measuring distances from building and where people might be so as to comply with drone flying regulations. It is important to keep a distance and this is where this feature on Google Maps can help.

Here in this video I will show you how easy this is to use and also how you can switch from metric to imperial and vice versa.
