# How To Measure Angles In The Landscape?

Use a tape measure to record the length of the long axis of the drumlin and the width at its widest point. Place a ranging pole at the base of the drumlin and a ranging pole at the highest point, then use a clinometer to measure the angle of elevation between them. Use a tape measure to measure the distance between the two ranging poles.

### How do you measure an angle from the ground?

To measure the slope angle from the top of the slope, put your eye by the zero degree mark and sight along the flat edge of the protractor toward the bottom of the hill. If you're at the bottom, put your eye at the 180 degree mark and look up toward the top.

### What tools can be used to measure angles?

Protractor, any of a group of instruments used to construct and measure plane angles.

### How do you calculate the angle of a slope?

Convert the rise and run to the same units and then divide the rise by the run. Multiply this number by 100 and you have the percentage slope. For instance, 3" rise divided by 36" run = .083 x 100 = an 8.3% slope.

### What's the correct way to measure an angle?

The formula will only involve dividing 360 by the number of sides to come up with the correct angle. If your project requires five sides that are all equal, you simply divide 360 x 5, and you will end up with 72°. Each corner will form a 72° angle. Next, divide that number by two to get the miter angle.

### How do you measure the shape of a garden?

Getting the approximate shape as accurate as possible. Include the house, garage, outbuildings and existing trees. You will need to record each trees approximate height, the girth of the trunk and canopy spread. Remember to include trees that overhang form neighbouring gardens.
