Missing feature - weather radar ruler
Is it possible to add a ruler showing distance and direction on a separate label to weather radar display! At the moment I'm estimating the speed of a rain shower using my thumb. I bet the digital ruler would be more accurate.
To get distance and direction on Radar layer, use Distance & planning tool (right click on mouse or long press on screen with the app)

Distance and Planning tool doesn't act while playing animations on data layers.
I guess the user would like a much simpler ruler tool control, directly available on map at any moment, for any static or animated data layer.
Something like this Leaflet demo.
I think such a simple ruler tool would be useful in all cases, for many different uses (in addition to the Distance and Planning tool).
I totally agree!
Especially a tool like "distance and planning tool"
where I could click in a storm (echo) on radar image (let say 1/2 hr old)
and after then on the same storm (latest image).
From the timestamp of those two images
the tool could calculate direction and speed of movement.
Developers, think about it!
Spot on! The described feature was the one I’m missing.
