This panel can measure points alongside a polyline.

The Divide tool an select a polyline and display this panel on the right. A point layer must be selected first as CoGo output layer. The panel contains three interface elements. If the method and the parameter selection are appropriate, then the output of the method, the points appear on the polyline. The points will divide the polyline in equally, distance based or ratio based way.

Method: the type of the division can be selected here:

• | Given number of section: the parameter is an integer number which divides the polyline into equal number of sections. |

• | Equal lengths: the parameter is real distance; this distance will be measured alongside the polyline from its start vertex several times until the last distance section can be measured. |

• | Given distances: the parameter is a list of distances; the distances will be measured alongside the polyline from the start vertex. |

• | Given ratios: the parameter is a list of ratios; the ratios of the polyline length will be measured alongside the polyline from the start vertex. |

Number / Length / Distance / Ratio: depending on the selected method the numerical parameter of the method can be entered here. Use space character to separate distances and ratios.

Add: it creates the points in the CoGo layer according to the above settings.
