  • Point measurement, to inspect the value of a grid overlay for a specific location. Optionally displays values over time in case the overlay supports timeframes.
  • Line measurement, to inspect the variation in values of a grid overlay on the line drawn.
  • Object measurement, to inspect the value of an attribute of an object related to a grid overlay. Optionally displays values over time in case the overlay supports timeframes.
