• does NOT use GPS

• requires access to the internet over WiFi or 3G so Maps are accessible

• does NOT reliably measure areas below ~1 acre in area see support website

• uses touch to "drop pins" in a map to define an area to measure

• the map must have features that are contextually informative so you can see where to drop pins

• satellite imagery, for instance, may not have newer buildings or construction

Calculate the area for an arbitrarily shaped (closed polygon) area of land. Choose the points (clockwise OR anti-clockwise) that define the area of land by placing stakes (push pins) in a map. Choose whether you use satellite or streets or both as reference points on the map. Accuracy limited only by the accuracy of native map capability.

All you need is built-in access to maps over WiFi OR 3G cell services. You do not need GPS to determine your location. App does NOT use GPS. Just pan the built-in map to where you need it.


• Fireman planning firefighting requirements for an active fire. See the 4th sample image for a recent California fire location.

• Farmers can use to plan fertilizer requirements for regular field changeovers.

• Real estate agents and investors can use the app to plan land acquisitions.

• Landman negotiating with farmers and cattlemen for oil exploration and drilling leases will also find this handy.


• As accurate as built in mapping features. See the image showing the football field as a reference calibration.

• Does not require GPS.

• Email to anyone a KML mapping file for use in mapping applications on any desktop.

• Email automatically attaches an image of the plot as well.

• Email also contains all of the raw data required to re-construct a plot.

• Any simple (convex OR concave) polygon can have its area calculated correctly.


• Localization to other countries.

• Altitude information for use in calculating actual surface area.

• Calculator for transforming area into dollars or other metrics.

• We will add new features if you tell us about your needs.


You can only construct the enclosed area of a polygon in either clockwise OR anti-clockwise order. And polygons must be simple, i.e. they may not crossover.

* We do have an iPhone version known as "Area Finder", though it does require Location Services *

What's New in Version 1.1

Added ability to name, save, load and delete individual plots.

Worthless Unless...

This application is only theoretical in that pins can only be dropped on a map. You cannot use it in the field. I need to find areas of roof tops for newly constructed buildings. It looks like the old iPhone app could do that, but this app cannot. I understand that nat everyone has 3G for their iPad, but at least make it an option for those of us that do.

0/5 stars


Doesn't work. Can't get past first demo page. How do I get credit for it?
