Now, move to the “Polys” section, and click on the green (Fit markers A, B, and V on screen) radio button. This will automatically adjust the Google map so that marker “A,” located way out in California, can also be seen!
At this point, you can choose to move the center of the Google map, the faded-white circle, the two yellow polylines (along with their three attached end-markers “A,” “B,” and “V”) down to the midpoint location of the “Poly-A” polyline (the white, “geodesic” “Poly-A” polyline in this case, being as there are long distances involved). The midpoint location is listed in the “Poly-A polyline midpoint location (yellow/aqua)” box as being “2300-2398 Sigmund Dr, Bellevue, NE 68005, USA” (with “NE” being the two-letter “state abbreviation” for the state of Nebraska, in America’s heartland). The two-step process of moving everything mentioned above involves 1) moving to the “Group” section, clicking on the blue “TM” (Transfer Poly-A Midpoint Lat-Lng) button (to transfer the latitude/longitude values in the “Poly-M Lat/Lng” input boxes to the “Group Lat/Lng” input boxes); and 2) ...
... clicking on the blue “GR” (Group Relocate/Clear PolyPocket) button, located to the right of the “Group Lat” input box, to move everything mentioned above.
But before you decide to perform those two steps ...
... you can also “zoom-in” on the Google map until you are down close to the midpoint of the “Poly-A” polyline (where the overlapping, aqua “Poly-M” polyline ends, and the white, “geodesic version” of the “Poly-A” polyline continues in the screenshot above. If you look closely at the Google map screenshot, you will notice that the white, “geodesic version” of the “Poly-A” polyline (the “geodesic version” of the “Poly-A” polyline representing the shortest distance between Old Orchard Beach, Maine and La Palma, California) continues west from the “Poly-A” polyline midpoint for another 1,547 feet (471.5 meters) before traveling straight through the front door of Bimbo Bakeries USA
. Bimbo Bakeries USA is part of the Mexican multinational firm “Grupo Bimbo”—the world’s largest baking company.
Have fun creating extremely precise 'polyarc' paths with the aid of the Pocket PolyArc!
