I'm sure some of you have seen this, new to me, thought I'd share: I found this site that makes it easy to measure acreage and other measurements on google maps. https://www.daftlogic.com/projects-google-maps-area-calculator-tool.htm
Here is DFW Airport (17,000 plus acres - wouldn't that be nice to have?)

Neat tool, there are also phone apps that do that. Real easy to get an estimate of square footage also.

You can alo use the Web Soil Survey. It'll show you acreage as well as soil types in your area and a bunch of other very useful information.

Google maps will do that too... Right click, hit measure, you can even measure the sq ft of houses, barns etc...


Skin that one pilgrim...I'll get you another one.

Thank you. I just did it for my pond. When I dug it, I did some measurements by creating a lot of squares and figuring out the square feet, then adding them all together to get 4 acres. I was able to zoom right in and click on every point, all the way around my pond to get a total of 4.52 acres.

That was fun!!!!

Very cool. Very easy to draw and use. Thanks for sharing. Did you make this tool?
