Measure distance between points

You can calculate the distance between two or more points on the map. For example, you can measure the mileage in a straight line between two cities.

  1. Open Google Maps. If you're using Maps in Lite mode, you’ll see a lightning bolt at the bottom and you won't be able to measure the distance between points.
  2. Right-click on your starting point.
  3. Choose Measure distance.
  4. Click anywhere on the map to create a path to measure. To add another point, click anywhere on the map.
  5. Optional: Drag a point or path to move it, or click a point to remove it.
  6. At the bottom, you’ll see the total distance in miles (mi) and kilometers (km).
  7. When done: On the card at the bottom, click Close Close.
