A measuring tool with an original way to measure routes, shapes, areas, anything that you can see on your screen.

  • Simply draw your line with mouse clicks on a nearly-transparent window over your map, chart or diagram, set Meander's scale against a known distance and read off the answers.
  • A selection of units included, eg miles, kilometers, metres, feet, inches. Add any further units you like
  • Useful for engineers, architects, walkers, runners, cyclists

    For users of earlier versions of Meander, this is a back-to-basics rewrite which provides the simple and original measuring functionality without the route-plannig and logging features. Use this version only if you're sure that it contains the functionality that you need.

  • What's New
  • Adds two built-in area units, hectare (ha) and acre (ac)
  • Handles units which are linear and squared for area (eg mile) and now also units which are areas only (eg acre)
  • Allows user to add additional area units, so if you wish to compare large areas to the area of Wales, you can!
  • Pro tip - to add Wales as a unit, the conversion factor you need to enter is 4556.42 (the number of metres along one side of a square of this unit)
  • Applies 'hilliness' slider to area as well as distance
  • Values of the hilliness slider revised.
  • At its maximum setting, it applies an adjustment equivalent to a 66% / 32 degree slope over the entire length of the route or over the entire enclosed area
  • Note that the effect of the hilliness slider is logarithmic which is appropriate
  • Preferences window now stays on top of acetate window, which is more user-friendly when acetate window is used full-screen. It can be moved or closed, even while drawing a line, and of course recalled with cmd-comma
