Enter an address or zoom into the map then click on the starting point of your shape. Continue to click along the outside edge of the shape you want to calculate the area of. As you add points the area will be updated below and converted into acres, square feet, meter, kilometers and miles. It will also show the perimeter of the shape. This tool is useful for finding the approximate acreage or a tract of land, the square footage of a roof, or any other instance where you need a good estimate of the area of something.

The easiest way to measure the acreage of a plot of land is to start by entering an address that is associated with the plot of land you need the area of. In rural areas where an address may not be available, you can enter the cross street or even the GPS coordinate of a point on the land. For GPS coordinates be sure to enter the latitude followed a comma then the longitude ex. (41.87811, -87.629798). In any case this will place a marker that you can use as a reference point to draw the area on the map. Once you are finished drawing the area calculator will display the area of the shape above the map.
