Calculating Area | Calculating Acreage
ExpertGPS can calculate the area of a closed route, track, or shape - very useful for determining acreage of a property, or estimating the size of a timber lot. ExpertGPS switches between acres, square feet, square miles, hectares, square meters, and square kilometers based on the measurement settings you select in Edit/Preferences.
To calculate the area of a closed route, track, or shape, do the following:
ExpertGPS works with hundreds of GPS receivers, including all Garmin Drive, nüvi, eTrex, Colorado, Dakota, echoMAP, GPSMAP, Edge, Forerunner, Montana, Oregon, and Rino models, Magellan eXplorist, Meridian, and SporTrak GPS receivers, and Lowrance iFinder, HDS, Elite, HOOK, LCX, and LMS GPS chartplotters and fishfinders.
