|OK, I thought maybe you meant distance of the last segment added (point to mouse position), not total distance of the line. |
Would it be better to have both?
Sorry, I meant the last segment. Showing both the last segment and total would be good.
After playing with it, I see the bottom left figure only captures the total distance. I'll enter a 211 foot segment, then a 327 foot segment. After two segments I'm breaking out the calculator, and after 1300 total feet, it converts to miles which is fine if you're measuring overall trail distance, but not good when you need to enter the next 250 foot segment of the property line.
Having it measure each segment separately, so that a calculator isn't needed, would be good. Keep the distance in feet, even if its a long segment over 1300 feet. I haven't seen a survey use miles.
The bearing would show something like N46deg55'51"
