"Planimeter - GPS area measure" is an Android application launched by VisTech.Projects developer for people who need to do measurements on a map using mobile devices.
The app uses Google Maps and GPS technology and provides user friendly and intuitive interface. Area, distance, bearing or angle measurements can be done easily without expensive equipment. Many useful features and options are available in the app to tune it for a specific user application area or a particular task. List of all app features is available from Google Play developer page:
Planimeter has been well-received by phone and tablet users from different countries. Here are some feedback examples from Google Play that demonstrate the variety of areas and activities where the app is applied:
“This is a must have tool if you have any reason to use geographical area or distance measurements”.
“Nice app! Very useful! I have used this app many times. As a crop farmer, I've used this app for measuring exact acreage in partially planted fields or odd shaped fields where planting overlap occurs and actual acreage can be very different from planted acreage for crop insurance purposes. I've used this while ice fishing on large lakes in snowstorms to mark my path from shore so I know where I have to go to make it back safely in zero visibility. I have also used this for distance calcs on a bike and hikes. Great app!”
The functionality and features of Planimeter are continuously updated and improved based on customers experience and their feedback. The app allows users to perform measurements by placing pins on Google Maps using touch screen, using current location from GPS / Network or by manual input of geo-coordinates. Address search is also available in the app.
Planimeter has a capability to do measurements on land using real-time tracking. The GPS tracking feature makes measurements as simple as walking or driving around. Tracking time interval and GPS accuracy can be set from the app.
The app is successfully applied in simple mapping tasks to mark location of objects (e.g. trees, buildings, cars, poles, etc) using touch screen and to export the results into Google Earth or Google Maps or as a screenshot image for further use in planning, budget reports or other presentations.
Options to share results as a text message or screenshots via e-mail, messengers, Google Drive or other suitable apps installed on Android device are also available in Planimeter. Previously saved measurements can be opened and edited directly from the app.
Along with usual data edit functions such as Select, Move or Erase Pins / points, there are several smart automatic processing functions for quick editing. These are very convenient features if the app user has to deal with a large number of data points (e.g. in case of real-time GPS tracking or drawing on the map) or just need to simplify and remove redundant points before saving data into KML file.
The variety of useful features, combined with “easy to use” experience, makes Planimeter a good choice not only for personal use of amateurs but also for professionals working in such areas like farming, road building, coating and repairing, construction and planning. Solar panel installation and real estate businesses can benefit from using the app as well.
Many positive reviews and comments from the app users give a good overview of real life examples where Planimeter is used on daily basis and how it simplifies user's work and makes a profit.
