Searh for address is not working! Is there anything that needs to be entered extra?
By Gee on 17th July 2018
I am no longer able to search by address. I keep coming up with addresses out of the country! Is there some way for me to correct this? Was there an update to the program I need to take steps to install?
On 17th July 2018
Hey there! Has the search by address functionality been disabled?

You can rotate the map once you zoom in close to certain populated areas and also are on the Satellite view.
By Daft Logic on 10th July 2018
This website is fantastic! I just wanted to know if there is a feature to rotate the map?
By verythankfulresearcher on 9th July 2018
Thanks for the suggestion. m² is now displayed on the Full Screen mode.
By Daft Logic on 5th July 2018
when it goes to the full screen, can you please add the calculations so we can see it without going back and forth to see the calculation? Please and thank you for this nice tool.
On 2nd July 2018
Mudit, no. It assumes the top-down view is flat. So this is a limitation or source of error if you are dealing with undulations.
By Daft Logic on 26th June 2018
Does this take into account, the elevation of the land?
By Mudit on 26th June 2018
Thanks boumen7, we will look in to this.
By Daft Logic on 16th June 2018
What an amazing site. An idea for a future add: to have the possibility to draw a predefined area shape (like a circle) then to fine tune it to get the desired area. The reason is that I want to draw a circle on a coastal area and to only take the dry-land-part of it.
By boumen7 on 16th June 2018
What an amazing tool! I needed to measure an area and did it within secunds of finding this site.

Add property lines, like Redfin. Thank you! :) Hope Google acquires you, and you make MONEY!

Please get in contact directly and include your username. We will look in to this.

To do a password reset, it says an email will be sent. But no email was received.

Thanks for this! Well developed page and it's nice not to have a promo for a commercial product shoved down your throat to use it.

¿Donde está la opción de cargar los puntos? Seria conveniente desde una hoja de cálculo.
By Juan Carlos Tapia on 16th May 2018
Hi Jo, can you confirm which device and web browser you are using please?
By Daft Logic on 15th May 2018
for sun city Arizona, there are missing images, it say no image available
On 10th May 2018
Hi Jo, thanks for the feedback. We will look in to this.
By Daft Logic on 9th May 2018
from the page "https://www.daftlogic.com/user.htm" clicking "export XLSX" of user-created areas the downloaded file is a .zip archive and not .xlsx. Changing the extension manually works as intended and can open the spreadsheet.
By Jo on 8th May 2018
wow... best website for surveying, so easy to get data about area calculation..
By Infosipil on 7th May 2018
Hi. Please add an option to import lat/long or a kml file to possibly edit in this tool for later export. Thanks!!!
By Bill on 2nd May 2018
Hi Adam, Thanks for the feedback. Yes, this is on the to-do list.
By Daft Logic on 2nd May 2018
I%u2019d like to know the length of the lines so I can see the area is for example 20 metres by 17metres
On 28th April 2018
Excellent tool and resource! I second the request to have multiple areas able to be saved as one project. It seems the generated KML might export all points but the save option doesn't retain all areas. Thank you!!!
By Adam on 27th April 2018
This tool is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!
By From Canada on 19th April 2018
Hi, this is a great tool, but any idea when multiple areas to be added to a project, then saved will be working ?
By Russ Davison on 16th April 2018
Excellent tool! Thanks!
