FAQ

  • How does SketchAndCalc calculate area?

    Simply draw the area you need to calculate. It’s that simple!

    Draw over maps, images, or a blank grid.

    Line lengths are displayed as you draw, and area and perimeter results are displayed in all measurement systems as the shape is closed.

  • How do I set the drawing scale?

    When finding the area of a map the drawing scale is set automatically based on map data. Just zoom in and start drawing.

    To set the scale of an image you’ll be prompted to draw and enter a ‘known length’ during image importation. A ‘known length’ could be any landmark or object on the image you know the length of. It could be a pin head, rular, or doorway.

    If you happen to know the scale you need before drawing you can manually set the length of a grid square in the measurement system you chose from the top right corner.

  • Can I calculate liner length?

    Yes.

    Not only can you draw multiple line lengths on separate layers, you can sum the total length of all open shapes together in one place. Giving you a total view of all liner lengths on all layers.

    You can even reference one layer whilst drawing another, and color code them.
