To work with tools, the Tools service should be enabled in your billing plan or account properties. Some tools may require additional services and access rights.
The menu of tools is located on the left side of the map. By default, only the icons of the first three tools are shown. To see the others, click on the icon .

Working with tools
You can move the window of each tool around the screen. For all the tools, except for Distance and Area, you can resize the window by dragging the lower-right corner. The window position and size remains the same the next time you open the tool.
Such tools as Distance, Area, Address, Routing, and Nearest units use the measurement system selected in the user settings. The measurement system of the Track Player and Track analysis tools corresponds to that of the selected unit.
