The Measure Tool can be used in the orbit view or in first person view. It is limited to one measurement at a time, and each new measurement will overwrite the previous one. Measurements are displayed in metric units.

Please note that the Measure Tool is only accessible in the Viewer if the tool is selected when publishing the Viewer
