A popular application of the handheld devices is to make use of the built-in Map to measure distances and areas. You may have been resigned to accepting the rough results for the lines and areas you digitize by using your finger tip or a capacitive stylus. Now, you can experience exciting digitization precision with the “Area - Distance” app. You will be able to do the following using the Area - Distance app on your iPAD, iPhone or iPod touch:

* Precisely digitize Points, Lines and Areas and save them as Features.

* View position, length or area values for the saved Features.

* Label the Lines with segment lengths and directions as well as corner angles.

* Label the Areas with size in acres and square feet or hectares and square meters.

* Measure distances and areas without saving the shapes.

* Move existing nodes to fine-tune the map drawing.

* Create Points from entered coordinates.

* Create Points from an imported text file.

* Create a Point or record a node by picking the GPS location.

* Search a location by address or by coordinates.

* Save the job data file for later use.

* Output the drawing and the coordinates to PDF.

* Email the job data files and the PDF files to your colleagues.

The Area - Distance app comes with a detailed built-in help document.

Please note: Location data depends on the GPS receiver used. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. This app will let you easily toggle the built-in GPS on or off.

Useful and pretty accurate

It would be a great update if you were able to move a node at the end of a line and see the bearing/distance measurement change instead of only coordinates changing. Also having the ability to grab not just a node but an entire area would be good feature also. It could be your first update
