Area Finder - Land Area Calculator for iPad 1.4

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:

* Real estate agents and investors can use to plan land acquisitions.
* Fireman planning firefighting requirements for an active fire.
* Farmers can use to plan fertilizer requirements for regular field changeovers.
* 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) closed polygon can have its area calculated correctly.

COMING:

* 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.
* Soon, a version which runs on both iPad & iPhone will be available as an update.

ATTENTION:

* The app does NOT require location services
* Use touch&hold to place markers using crosshairs.
* App requires access to the internet over WiFi or 3G so Maps are accessible
* App cannot reliably measure areas below ~1 acre in area -- see support website
* App uses touch&hold 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
* 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 ***
