Specify floorplan dimensions in meters

Is it possible in the dashboard to specify the dimension in meters of a floorplan?

 

In the documentation (Using_a_Floor_Plan_or_Custom_Map_in_Dashboard) it says that you can optionally specify the meters, but I do not see this option now, has it been removed?


So how can it calculate the x and y given in the Scanning API POSTs without knowing the size of the floorplan?

Kind of a big deal

Typically you place the floor plan onto a Google Map (typically using the satellite imagery).  That gives it the size of your floor map.

This is actually hard to do correctly especially in tall buildings (google puts funky 3d shadows in the map) and no scale on the google map... any chance to add option to hide the buildings and add scale (google maps support this)?

 

 

here is a small example

Use the satellite imagery option.  It's easier.
