    Default How to measure length with path and marked place from start path

    Hi All
    I have route to my plan trip,and for that I have draw a path with hundred of lines and on those some point of path have been marked as marked places.
    Is there any way to measure path length of those marked places from starting point of path? or to measure length of path between marked places?


    thanks

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.

    Its takes time If I using ruler to re-draw the path.

    As far as I can find out, there is no way to measure as an afterfact. It should be done at the time the path is created.

    Correction: I found the following third party software they claim will measure GE path even in KMLs that are already created.

    Default Find the length of a Google Earth Path

    Well, I didn’t feel like installing a program on my computer, and I didn’t think anyone else should have to either, so I made a website where you can upload Google Earth path files and it will tell you how long the path is! Here’s the link:

    Enjoy!

    I realized that my upload script was broken, but I fixed it. I also made it so that you can now upload .kmz path files or .kml path files. So again, here is the link to find the length of your Google Earth path:
