Planimeter is a must have in our Farming Operations

In todays intense Farming operations I find this app to be a necessity. Here in California’s expensive Vegetable and Berry production regions precision is a must. The sub inch GPS systems we utilize in our industry to ensure consistency and accuracy is key as the we try to drive efficiency and yields. That said, it’s understood that though this app isn’t going to get to that level of accuracy +/- 1” it is still a tool I use to do rough calculations daily to run labor cost efficiency for harvest and farm labor crews as it gives us ballpark until the efficiency reports are generated from payroll. I’ve used this app for years after trying many others and I found it to be simple and clean interface. Just my 2 cents.

This is one of the best apps of its kind. The capability is incredible and allows for most of my needs. This includes things like having multiple shapes colors and more. On the down side, it would be nice if you had more options for showing notes and presenting measurements. Another major issue is the inability to export maps to another device or a sync feature so my maps would be current on all my devices. The only other thing I can think of is the maps offered in this program are not as current as some of the other apps I use. Not a big deal overall but worth mentioning.

I received a response from an email to the company and they resolved the issue, the half moon option switches to a different map, weird but it worked. Anyways, the customer service was quick and spot on, awesome!

Bought this app for the ease of measuring and getting bids together, however the old outdated maps are not working well for me with all the new builds going on in my area. Just down the road is a building that was constructed, they started breaking ground on it 5 years ago and there is zero of that in the outdated maps. Just an example but still a real problem imo.
