Answering my own question:

Geodesic Measurement works with a surface. Use the filter Extract Surface. It’s 
also necessary to have a couple of points which can be selected with Select 
Points and the filter Extract Selection.

Subject: [Paraview] How to use the plugin Geodesic Measurement


I loaded the Geodesic Measurement plugin with the Plugin Manager, but I do not 
know how to use it. I see it as a filter option, but it is disabled even for 
point-based data. I haven’t been able to find an example either. I am 
interested in finding the shortest path between two points in a surface.
