Google Maps - Measure and calculate the distance on map


Google Maps has introduced a new tool allowing you to measure the distance between two points (or more) on a map. For practical purposes, fun or curiosity, this tool can be accessed by right-clicking on the map.

Here's an example:
  • Open Google Maps and select a location.
  • Right-click on the initial location > Measure distance.
  • Right click on the second location > Distance to here
  • The distance between the two points will be displayed on the map.
  • You can add new locations by clicking on the map (left click):

To clear the measurement:
  • Right-click on the map > Clear measurement.
