There are some extra tools within Optioneer we often adopt during the analysis stage.
Measure distance or area tool
By right-clicking anywhere on the map, a menu will appear with three options: Inspect (view tooltip), measure area and measure distance. If 'Measure Area' is selected, you can draw a polygon on the map by clicking around the perimeter of the area. The area will be provided in a pop-up at the top of the screen. To stop selecting double click on your last point.
Similarly, to measure a distance, select 'Measure Distance' from the menu. Select a minimum of two points and Optioneer will display the distance of the line in a pop-up at the top of the screen. To stop selecting double click on your last point.
If the 'Linear Features' design rule is active in a configuration, the locations of the crossing will appear as icons in the map view and in the vertical profile. The visibility of these icons can be managed via the Route Icon Selection tool on the left-hand side toolbar. This helps you filter the crossing types you wish to analyse at that moment.
