Description

PLEASE READ FIRST BEFORE YOU BUY THIS APP. SOME PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT THIS APP DOES OR DOESN'T DO, SO WE MADE THIS LIST OF WHAT IT CAN & CAN'T DO

• 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.

GREAT FOR:

• 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.

FEATURES:

• 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.

COMING:

• 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.

ATTENTION:

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.

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