This sample shows how to use the measurement widgets in 3D:

The straight distance between two points can be measured using the DirectLineMeasurement3D widget. The widget displays the horizontal, vertical and direct distance.


An area can be measured using the AreaMeasurement3D widget.


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.
