Google Planimeter - Measure Acreage Through Google Maps!
« on: June 15, 2011, 02:42:59 PM »
Found out about this 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.
