Mainly for education, the search engine giant have successfully added ‘Measure Distance’ feature to its Google Earth app. The new feature was unveiled on Monday when Google made it clear that the new tool has the ability to measure length, width and area.
Google is making it easier for users to measure distance and area between any two places on Earth. The new tool for Google Earth enable users to measure the distance between any two points on the planet. The new feature can also let users measure areas, such as a park near your house. Google claims that the new feature called Measure Tool has been “one of the most requested” among users.
The new feature is available on Chrome and Android, but will be added to iOS soon.
Like we said earlier, the addition of this feature for measuring area appears to be useful, especially for students (Geography students) , scientists, educators, and travellers. Gopal Shah, Product Manager, Google Earth, says in a blog post, “If you’re a teacher, use the map to create math problems – and challenge your students to find out which is bigger – Colorado or Utah? (without Googling it!)”
