The Radius Tool is particularly useful for identifying how far a site is from basic social and transport infrastructure. For Example, if you are searching sites for a care home then you might have criteria for distances to the train station, hospital, town centre, etc. You can use the Radius Tool in any layer.
How to draw a circle:
Hover over the tool icon, then click the "Place a circle on the map" icon when it expands out.
Click where you want the centre of the circle to be, so that you can measure the radius from it, say, from a train station like this:
If you want to change the radius, you can set it by entering the amounts in the fields on the right-hand side, either as an exact distance, or a rough estimate of time to travel (e.g. five minutes away).
Need to move the circle? Simply drag and drop it to the new location, like so:
Don't need it anymore? Simply click the bin icon on the right to delete it.
