Title: Google Planimeter - Measure Acreage Through Google Maps!
Post by: [Blocked] on June 15, 2011, 02:42:59 PM
Found out about this http://www.acme.com/planimeter/ (http://www.acme.com/planimeter/) on the QDMA Forum today and had to post it here!  Talk about an awesome site, just point and click and measure acreage using images from Google Earth!  BTW, now I know our corn field at the camp is 2.8 acres and it took me about 30 seconds to measure it and have it calculated!

Thats fun to play with. Here is the County Web-based Tax Mapping program for Alabama and Georgia if you need to find out who pays the taxes and how much land they have.

Pretty neat, but i'm to far off the grid to set points with any accuracy.
Thanks for the link.

That is a handy tool.  I used it a couple of years ago to more closely estimate the surface area of a pond at our old place in order to calculate my application rate for weed control.  I wasn't too far off my crude initial estimate, but based on the price of the chemicals we were using, it was nice to have more confidence in the number!  By the way, if any of you are struggling to control the duckweed on your lake or pond, we used a liquid product called Sonar at the time with fantastic results.  Someone later came out with Whitecap, which is a generic version of Sonar but at a much lower cost - I understand it works just the same.
