Overview of Measuring and Tracking
Concept Procedure

Once you have assigned coordinate systems to your map, you can locate specific coordinate points and measure the geodetic distance between points. For example, you can determine the coordinates of a maintainance hole or the centerline of a new road.

For drawing objects in your map, there are additional coordinate geometry commands you can use to get accurate geometric information about the objects.

In addition, you can use AutoCAD commands, such as DIST, AREA, PROPERTIES, and PERIMETER, to obtain information about drawing objects, which can help you do useful calculations. For more information, refer to the AutoCAD Help.
