The measurement widgets can also be used with all types of layers, including PointCloudLayer or IntegratedMeshLayer.When the widget is active, a horizontal "laser" line is drawn which indicates the height at the current mouse position.This line can help in analyzing the heights of objects relative to each other and the terrain.
