• Can you put a mile radius on Google Maps? Google Maps does not support the radius functionality, which means that you can't determine the radius around a given location. But you can measure the distance between two or more points. As a quick reminder, the radius of a circle is the distance from its edge to its center.

• Once you're in Google Maps, find the menu icon in the upper left, next to the Maps search box.
• At the bottom of My Maps panel, click “Create Map.” This opens a new tab.
• So, you've got the circle moved over.
• Don't worry about messing up the shape.
• ## How do you work out the radius?

• Divide the circumference by π, or 3.14 for an estimation. The result is the circle's diameter.
• Divide the diameter by 2.
• There you go, you found the circle's radius.
• ## How do I calculate distance on Google Maps?

• Right-click on your starting point.
• Select Measure distance.
• To create a path to measure, click anywhere on the map. To add another point, click anywhere on the map.
• When finished, on the card at the bottom, click Close .

• Open measuring tool (ruler icon on toolbar, or Tools menu > Ruler)
• In Ruler window, select the "Circle" tab.
• Select the units you want to measure the radius in (eg: Kilometers)
• Click (click, don't drag) on the map at the center point of your circle (eg: Vancouver)

### How do you find radius with distance?

According to the distance formula, this is √(x−0)2+(y−0)2=√x2+y2. A point (x,y) is at a distance r from the origin if and only if √x2+y2=r, or, if we square both sides: x2+y2=r2. This is the equation of the circle of radius r centered at the origin.

### How do you work out diameter from radius?

Just remember to divide the diameter by two to get the radius. If you were asked to find the radius instead of the diameter, you would simply divide 7 feet by 2 because the radius is one-half the measure of the diameter. The radius of the circle is 3.5 feet. You can also use the circumference and radius equation.

### How do you convert radius to length?

Divide the central angle in radians by 2 and perform the sine function on it. Divide the chord length by double the result of step 1. This calculation gives you the radius. Multiply the radius by the central angle to get the arc length.

### How do you measure distances on a map?

If the scale is a verbal statement (i.e. "1 inch equals 1 mile"), determine the distance by simply measuring it with a ruler. For example, if the scale says 1 inch = 1 mile, then for every inch between the two points on the map, the real distance on the ground is that number in miles.
