how do you email a file to someone?

Hi Martin, this tool should do what you need : Google Maps Distance Calculator.
By Daft Logic on 7th November 2019
Simple request (conceptually :) - I know it may take more to implement). Could we have a simple distance tool, i.e. click on a number of points and get the total distance, no area and no double distance. I know I can do it using the tool as it is, and that's great, but it's a little messy.
Thanks for a useful tool that I use a lot.
By Martin on 7th November 2019
Is there a way to include the tool into my own website?
By Rainer Winkler on 31st October 2019
Developers, thank you for the tool.
By Kirill on 26th October 2019
Amazing. Would be great to do multiple areas and have them labeled with the size. I can do it manually, with thanks, but would be a great feature.
On 27th August 2019
I'm hoping my site c area was saved as didn't see KML to click.

We have an exterior tv antenna and wanting to know if there is a way to attach a device to contribute information in favor of the migratory bird, insects, and any other species. We have the wild milkweed for our area and have seen a huge decline in the monarch butterfly. Last year I noticed that the few caterpillars we had,most shriveled and died. Have there been other reports and why?
Thank you for all that you do..

i want 2010 map to find location of some things
how can i search
On 5th April 2019
Hi Mark, it should be as simple as clicking [Load the Map] to get the map on screen, then start drawing the area to measure.
By Daft Logc on 25th March 2019
All I've been trying to do is to calculate acreage. Can we still do that or is that not available? And if you need to sign up and pay where is that and how much???
By Mark on 24th March 2019
Hi Tom, we will look in to this.
By Daft Logic on 27th February 2019
Hi, this is a great tool but i was wondering if there was any way to incorporate a topographical map?
By Tom on 26th February 2019
Can you check you junk mail? If it's not there, please get in contact directly.

great application just love it!
Any option to use Bing maps as well?
On 17th February 2019
Me gusto, es muy útil, me ayudó mucho sobre todo en lugares de difícil acceso para calcular áreas, sin embargo al final se bloqueó y me canceló el permiso de uso. Gracias
By Carlos R Moreno on 17th January 2019
I love this. Use it a lot.
On 12th January 2019
Great application. And it%u2019s free. Thank you. I%u2019m using it to buy land to use as a nature center.

TO PRINT YOUR CALCULATION MAP, if the normal function is not working, I would just do a screen shot of your view (you should be able to enlarge the view to full screen). A bit crude maybe, but at least you have the image. I haven't tried this, but you might get a better result by right clicking on the map and selecting "save image." I use a tablet, so my method is to tap/press on the map, and select "save image."
You should find the image in your gallery or wherever your photos or screen shots are stored.
*FWIW, today there was no response when entering the address i am trying to map out, so no fun for me. %u2639 Usually everything is perfect and instantaneous on DL, hope its back up soon. I hate to say this, but maybe its time for a couple reeeeaaallllyyy tiny ads? Little teency ones. Please note, I HATE INTERNET ADS, but as long as they don't move, have flashing colors or lights, noise or sound of any kind, and a 100% RELIABLE way to click them off,.. and they STAY OFF, then i might be ok with it. I really like using the site.
