denzil, it isn't possible to adjust the pop-up behaviour. It is decimal degrees, so [lat, lng]. We have reduced the number of decimal points on the display as it was far to precise for its purpose. This will make the job of noting the location simpler.

I am using the 'distance calculator' program. Also is the readout in deg/mins/secs?. thanks for an early response. denzil feb 21/2018

Hi Denzil.
Which page on Daft Logic are you using?
By Daft Logic on 12th February 2018
a fantastic program which I have been using for many years. would it be possible to show longitude/latitude by the marker point for as long as takes for the user to copy. also are the values in degrees/minutes/secs.

Hi, the rotate option only appears at certain times. You need to be looking at an area with the correct imagery available. Then get zoomed in close enough for it to become active. Large cities are the most common place it works.

how do i get the rotation button to pop up to rotate buildings for side views? I've zoomed in like online videos tutorials show and it's not working. Thanks

Signed up for an account a week ago and still can't log in. Now it says email is already in use but I never got an email to verify or confirm my registration. Looks like it's waiting in someone's inbox to approve it. Manual registration approval only happened in the 90s. Not very useful if I can't save my work.

Thank you! The Google Map Distance Calculator helped us a lot when performing location measurements on day-to-day ISP operations.
The feature of displaying the field elevation is also of utmost importance when dealing with signal dispersion in urban areas. Instead of carying Google Earth with us, we simply appoints to your tool for easy and fast deployment.
Keep up the good work!

Drewk , when logged in and on the Google Maps Area Calculator Tool, there are options to save an area you have drawn just above the map.
By Daft Logic on 28th April 2017
Hi it is not clear to a dumbo like me how I save areas I have calculated and will want to revisit. I am logged in.

I just tested the range of my Pirate Radio station while walking around with the radio too see the coverage. I used the distance calculator on here and the area calculator. I'm having my best range yet!

Hi Paul, thanks for the feedback. The redesign was intended to make the site more usable on mobile and tablet devices. If there is anything in particular you could think could be improved such as layout then let us know.
