Linear mapping, length and width of the mission

Hi,

is it possible to add the length and width of the mapping mission in the Linear flight?

While we swipe left or right to remove or add flight lines the app shows a length and width but they do not correspond to the actual flight lines.

The weird part here is figuring out what axis to make that measurement from.  The flight length and duration is shown in the Flight Stats panel (top left).

Thanks Zane,

My example is simple. Lets say I want to map a road 3km long. I want to split the road to 500m segments. Right now the only way to do this is to make kml files with the segments and create 6 missions of 0.5km each.

If the app can display the total length from the first to the last orange dot it would be very nice!

How about laying it out with a single pass and looking at the total distance?

The problem with what you are suggesting is that if there is anything other than a straight line we would not know what axis to make the measurement on.

This doesn't provide the information i want. It calculates the whole flight length from the starting point to the orange dots and back so a length of 0.5km road is shown as 1.xx km length which depends on the starting point.

Anyway this is not so important, just a suggestion.
