Fig 1: Identify and Measure Tools

Identify allows you to identify a point’s XYZ coordinate—in the same coordinate system as the original scan—as well as the current color of the point. To use this tool simply click the button and then click a point within the viewing area.


Measure

The Measure tool measures the distance between two selected points. To use this tool simply click the Measure button and then click a starting point within the viewing area. A line will now be drawn from the starting point to wherever the mouse cursor currently is. Now click a second point somewhere within the viewing area. A dialog will pop up telling you the distance between the points. You can adjust these display units under the Options menu in the upper-right corner of the application (Metric/Imperial Units).
