Planimeter is a tool to measure distance, area and perimeter on a map. You can measure manually or by GPS tracking. You can also check the bearing and geo-coordinates of your location and share it. Points can be labeled, saved and shared in KML format.

This measurement app is useful for outdoor activities and can be used as land surveyor by amateurs and professionals in various industries like sport, farming, landscaping, paving and construction, road building and repairing, real estate business, hiking and travel, fencing, lot building and planning, solar panel installation (roof area estimation), object mapping, lawn design, and many other where land area and distance / length calculations, land survey or maps are involved.

Great app for asphalt estimation but needs a few improvements

I just used this app to double check my field measurements instead of having to drive 2 hours, and measure in the field for another 2 hours..saving me time and money.

2 things I would to see in the future

1. It would be much easier and more accurate for my line of work if I could zoom in further on the satellite image. It’s fine if it’s pixelated, I just need more accurate points.

2. The pins need to be either translucent or simply small dots. The pins coming off the map effect covers up the image where I need to place my next point in some cases..thus causing loss of accuracy.

Hopefully these changes can be made, because at this point I’m still looking for a better app. Thank you

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback and suggestions!
We will consider your request about zoom for accurate pin placement.
Regarding your 2nd point, you can hide pins, lines, area by using short and LONG touch on Area and Distance buttons.
Contact if have any other suggestions or need any help. Thank you for your support!

Great app

Overall what I’m looking for. Will work great for my lawn service business. The only option I really would like to see added is an address search function, that would help having to look up a property in another app to find lat & long, then back to this app.

Multiple sections

I’m currently trying to divide up in thirds (approx 8.3 acres each) 25 acres along a partial of land that is road side on one side and a creek running diagonal across the back. I would like to be able to keep highlighted each 1/3 as I move and adjust the pins so that to keep track of the boundaries and find my layout to make the equal division of land. Makes sense ??
