Podaris has a number of tools for creating and analysing projects. Those tools include:
- Select -- for selecting and modifying objects
- Draw -- for creating points and lines
- Station -- for creating stations or access points
- Erase -- for erasing objects
- Comment -- for commenting within a view
- Isochrone -- for calculating travel times from any location
- Measure -- for measuring distance
When a tool is selected, options for that tool will be displayed in the Tool Properties Panel, which by default is docked at the top of the sidebar.
A common property of all tools is that pressing 'esc' will cancel the current tool action if one is in progress (for example, doing a measurement or drawing a line), while pressing 'esc' will exit the tool and return to the Select Tool.
