On the road to gvSIG 2.3: Dynamic segmentation (VI and final)

Once we have seen in previous post how to create routes, calibrate them and generate the dynamic segmentation, in this last post we will see how to show and clean measure.

Show measures

This tool allows the graphic representation of the M coordinate. To enable this tool, the active layer of the View has to be a layer of lines with M coordinate points. Some element has to be selected.

Once activating the tool, a dialog box is showed which allows to introduce the required distance between the kilometer points.


Once accepting, gvSIG will show the point in the route with the set distances and one label with the M coordinate of that point.. The label format will be“# + ###”. So, the kilometer point 2,350 will be “2 + 350”.


This tool show the results in the View without changing any of the data of the used routes.

Clean measures

This tool cleans from the View all the measures previously displayed for the previous tool.

The user could have executed the tool for showing measures as many times or over many routes as wanted, and because they stay in the View and it can be a problem for the correct interpretation of the data, using the clean measures tool, all the measures will be cleared from the view.
