iPad App of the Week – Parcel Mapping with Planimeter
One necessary tool for all REALTORS is parcel mapping. There are many mapping services that can give you a visual representation of of a property or neighborhood (Bing, Google maps, etc.). These are fine but all are lacking the most vital bit of information – property dimensions. Here is where Planimeter comes to the rescue!
Planimeter allows you to search (or zoom) to a parcel, set waypoints at each corner and presto, you have the diameter and area!
After you are finished, you can copy these measurements, copy the image, email the image or save it to your Photos on your iPad.
From the app website:
“Measure your outdoor projects – lawns, yards, fences, driveways or anything else seen on the satellite map. Measure distances for bike rides, golf courses or race tracks. Real estate professionals can quickly measure lot sizes and buildings. Contractors can measure roads, driveways, parking lots, or flat roofs.”

All of this for $2.99 in the App Store. Try this app out and leave me a comment about it.
