Understand Views

In this guide, you will learn how to navigate and view measurements in the Moasure app. We'll cover various viewing options and tools to help you visualise your data effectively.

From app version 2.0 onwards, views have been improved. They're now accessible on the canvas and have been expanded to include surface and contour views.

View Measurements in 2D

2D "plan view," provides a top-down perspective of your measurement. Tapping individual pause points reveals their relative XYZ coordinates, including height elevation. Tap away from any pause point on your screen to see the view icons again.

View Measurements in 2D Fit

To visualize a measurement primarily on a sloping plane, rather than a horizontal one, switch to the '2D FIT' view. This perspective shows the measurement from an angle perpendicular to the sloping plane, causing dimensions and the area value to adjust accordingly. It's important to note that when measuring on a horizontal plane, switching to '2D FIT' won't result in a significant change in the view.

View a Contour Map

To view a Contour Map tap on the Contour Icon. The proximity of contour lines reflects relative gradient steepness over the measured area; closer lines indicate steeper gradients, and vice versa. The app automatically sets the contour interval.

View Measurements in 3D

To view elevations, grades, or gradients, switch to 3D view. Here's how:

  • Tap on a 3D icon.

  • Choose the 3D cube for standard 3D visualization or the 3D Surface Icon to see the Surface Mesh. The Surface Mesh view displays surface area and volume. Surface area is the sum of all faces of the three-dimensional figure, while volume is calculated by projecting to a horizontal plane set at the origin point's height (z-0).

How to Zoom, Move and Pan a Measurement

You can interact with your measurements using touch gestures:

In 2D View:

  • Drag/Move (use two fingers to move horizontally)

  • Zoom (use two fingers to pinch vertically)

In 3D View:

  • Drag/Move (use two fingers to move left and right)

  • Zoom (use two fingers to pinch up and down)

  • Pan (use one finger to move left and right)

How to Use and Understand Cross Section

The Cross Section feature allows you to view the relationship between two points. Here's how to use it:

  1. Select a point as your base point.

  2. Tap on View in the bottom left corner.

  3. Tap on Cross Section (scroll right in the toolbar if needed).

  4. Select another point as your reference point and tap Cross Section.

In Cross Section, you will have three sub-views: Gradient, Plan, and Side.
