Planimeter - GPS area measure
Description
Planimeter is a tool to measure land distances and areas on a map, to check bearing and geo-coordinates of a location. 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. If you have any question about Planimeter and its functionality, please check How To Use Quick Guide: http://ios.vistechprojects.com/Planimeter_iOS_QuickGuide.pdf Video Demo: http://youtu.be/unjYbPCIYM0 http://youtu.be/QQMilHVD5e8 Features: Accurate distance and area calculation Metric and Imperial units (m, km, feet, yards, miles, ha, acres) Angle between lines Bearings To and From the point Forth and Back navigation through points by touch on Info Panel GPS coordinates of a point GPS accuracy settings (if GPS available) Manage previously saved projects: open, save, share KML files KML files created by Planimeter can be imported to GEarth and GMaps to view on a desktop Send data by email: picture, coordinates as text message, KML file Save KML or TXT in local storage Map/Satellite View Zoom and Edit points Current location search Text (address) search Delete selected/last/all points Zoom to Fit-in and center points on a screen - quick points search Add points by touch Add current location as a point Show location with Latitude and Longitude coordinates Add points by Geo-coordinates: Lat and Lng Option to center last point added Option to show/hide lines Preferences: location accuracy, tracking time interval, delete points confirmation, sound option for tracking Separate units settings for distance, area, perimeter Target Mode for accurate pin placement Show current coordinates in Target Mode Stylus Draw Mode Full-screen option GPS TRACKING Manual pin placement in GPS Tracking The app has been successfully used in different areas: - outdoor activities: sports, golf (distance between two points or holes), bike tours, trail planning, travelling, quick path measure - garden and yard: landscape planning, grass cutting, lawn care and mowing, fencing, grass seeding. - agriculture, poultry and farming: harvesting, fertilizing, crops (corn, wheat, maize, beet, etc.) planning and estimation, field area measure, paddocks and area fencing for cows, horses, chickens, rabbits, etc. - solar energy: area estimation for solar panels, flat roof area estimation - construction: land survey, road sealing, parking lot repairing - forestry: objects and tree mapping, damage area estimation, measure land area - other: ponds size and are measure; pole lines planning; movement tracking; get exact GPS coordinates of way-points; fence calculation; geocaching. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. If you like the app and find it useful please support us with your feedback and comment.

Not worth it

Could be my gps on my phone but it’s a new iPhone. Was not locating coordinates properly.
Good for walking field boundaries
by Farmer Davey G on 2019/10/10 17:15
I find this app works well in documenting field boundaries for agricultural purposes. It matches my handheld high-precision Garmin unit very well on reasonably clear days and does a faster job of documenting areas via screenshots. I like that it will export the raw data points too. On cloudy days with worse GPS signal, I still need to use the smaller handheld hardware unit.
It doesn’t work
by arlene137 on 2019/05/31 21:28
I need it to pin a location I am at, it cannot even tell me my location.
Great app
by hahnslawncare on 2019/03/24 12:32
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.
Great Ap

Great app for asphalt estimation but needs a few improvements
by JRU126 on 2018/06/11 15:01
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
Garbage
by James and the jokesters on 2018/05/16 23:44
Instructional “videos” do not include a narrative, the developer makes the claim this can be used by professionals, then in the information after you purchase states “only accurate with 3m”. I’m looking for lot lines, 3m??? LOL THERE IS NO WAY ANY REVIEW HERE THAT SAYS THEY USE THIS FOR LAND DISPUTES, AND IT WORKS, IS AN ACTUAL REVIEW. If you are disputing where your fence goes...1 ft makes a HUGE difference let alone the +\- nearly 10 ft the developer disclaims after they take your money!

Paid app, what’s wrong?? Can’t zoom on map, can’t change color of area, can’t rotate map. That’s just for starters. Far better apps that will give you much more. Unless you want too lower your expectations in life. Good Grief this needs real help. Sorry, but this is a goose egg.
Works really well

Best tool I have ever used to find the amount of area we are flooding for the acreage!!!
Food plots

It works perfect for what I’m using it for, making food plots for deer!

Pretty awesome! Needs to be more update.
Waste of time.
by Instructor Robert on 2017/08/26 20:31
Purchased app. No instructions on how to use it and the fonts used are too small to read on an iPad. Let's hope they fix it.
Points by coordinates
by DonMoell on 2016/12/03 05:05
Great app. Only thing missing, is the ability to manually add points by typing in the respective coordinates.
WARNING!
by DWAndrus on 2016/07/07 02:34
If you purchase this application, beware! This app is functionally OK, but to walk a path to define an area REQUIRES that you leave its location services active, even when not using the phone. You could turn off location services on the phone, but then all other apps using that service, like maps, would be unusable. Unacceptable.
Does not work

Iphone 6 plus never finds gps coord even though google maps does
Accuracy worse than google maps app

This app has terrible gps accuracy. Not useful at all.
No luck

Can't seem to get it functioning. Just want to set a single waypoint and walk away from it and know straight line distance. Should be simple right?

I like the track mode, so i can drive around a field and get the exact measure!
